2013 Houston: Chevrolet IndyCar Race Recap

Will Power showed his prowess at street racing with a convincing win today in Race No. 2 of the Grand Prix of Houston at Reliant Park - round 18 of the 19-race 2013 IZOD IndyCar Series schedule.

It was the second win of the season for the driver of the No. 12 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet, who led a race-high 51 laps of the 90-lap/153-mile race. The victory moved Power to seventh in the standings with one race remaining in the season.

"Congratulations to Will Power, Tim Cindric and the No. 12 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet IndyCar team on their win today in Houston," said Jim Campbell, U.S. Vice President Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. "Will drove an amazing race, and the pit stops were quick and efficient all-day long. We are looking forward to the final IndyCar race in Fontana."
