Will Power finally doesn't bottle it during a major race!

Wilsons engineer was running the "lets see if fuel creates itself" strategy.

Not unhappy about Power winning, he was on the ball all race.

Did they replay Phoenix? Looked like everyone but Penske pitted with 10 to go? But then ABC had made the picture CR@P here so I have no clue

Deserved win for Will.

And a great job by the Penske pit crew too. No mistakes made by anybody including Power. Deserved winner for sure.

An understandable roll of the dice for Wilson and Harvey, I would've done the same in their place.
I would've quite liked a Wilson victory, for his brother if nothing else, but I can't be unhappy at Power's win.

Don't care what anyone says - good race that. Passes were not as rare as was made out and had to be earned, rather than gifted through the draft. Car was a challenge and those who mastered it (Rossi) were able to use and abuse it.

The TV coverage was so funny it was like a comedy act. My hat is off to the Americans who have to put up with that nonsense week in, week out. Even without the ads, the commentators were so utterly clueless it was great. It really was like some sort of weird parody.

Thank god we get RLM for IMSA.

Except they really were. Sorry, but you're just wrong on this. Passes for position were very very rare. And almost every one of them came right after a caution.

We had 3 passes in 4 minutes during the side-by-side commercial break towards the end (one of which was for the lead), and we had Rossi make several into turn 3 whilst not on a restart. I mean, I guess passes were rare...if you ignore the passes.

Sorry if that doesn't fit with the "I love the perfect DW12" narrative. I'll leave you to that echo chamber
