"And the No. 12 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet IndyCar team delivered a great comb ination of strategy, quick pit stops and great driving by Will Power to clinch the win. It was great to see Tony Kanaan in the No. 10 Energizer Chevrolet with a podium finish."

Helio Castroneves, No. 3 Hitachi Team Penske Chevrolet, today’s pole winner, finished fifth to give Chevrolet-power three of the top-five finishers. The strong finish keeps Castroneves third in the standings.

Charlie Kimball, No. 83 Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet, finish ninth, his third top-10 of the season.

Graham Rahal (Honda) completed the podium, and Justin Wilson (Honda) filled out the top-five.
