2014 St. Petersburg: Chevrolet IndyCar Race Recap

Will Power, No.12 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet, won today’s Verizon IndyCar Series Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg - the series’ season-opening race. It is the third consecutive year that a driver powered by the Chevrolet IndyCar V6 engine has started the season on the Streets of St. Petersburg with a win.

"Congratulations to Will Power and the entire No. 12 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet team on their win in today's Grand Prix of St. Petersburg," said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet’s U.S. Vice President of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. "Helio Castroneves’ podium finish in the No. 3 Hitachi Chevy and Scott Dixon’s fourth place finish in the No. 9 Target Chip Ganassi Racing car resulted in three Chevrolet powered Indy cars in the top four finishing positions. It is a great start to the 2014 Verizon IndyCar Series season".

Today’s victory marked the 22nd career for Power who led three times for 74 of the 110-lap race. It is his third consecutive Series’ victory (Race Two at Houston and season-ending race at Auto Club Speedway preceded today’s win), and the second time he has won the St. Petersburg race.

Joining Power on the podium was Team Penske teammate Helio Castroneves, No. 3 Hitachi Chevrolet. Last year’s runner-up in the title chase finished third.

Defending Verizon IndyCar Series champion, Scott Dixon, No. 9 Target Chip Ganassi Chevrolet finished fourth. His teammates Tony Kanaan, No. 10 Target Chevrolet and Ryan Briscoe, No. 8 NTT Data Chevrolet gave Team Chevy five of the top-10 finishers with sixth and 10th place finishing positions respectively.

Ryan Hunter-Reay (Honda) was second to complete the podium.

Today’s victory was the third win for Chevrolet in a the three major U.S. motorsports series in which it competes. Action Express Motorsports with drivers Christian Fittipaldi, Joao Barbosa and Sebastien Bourdais put the No. 5 Corvette Daytona Prototype in Victory Lane for the Rolex 24 at Daytona, and Dale Earnhardt, Jr. won the Daytona 500 behind the wheel of the No. 88 National Guard Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet SS.

The next race for Chevrolet in the Verizon IndyCar Series will be the Grand Beach of Long Beach (Calif) on April 13, 2014.
