Indycar driver Will Powers wins in Brazil for 3rd straight year.
RITMO congratulates Will Powers on his victory at the 2012 Sao Paulo 300 in Brazil last week. This now puts Powers just ahead of RITMO brand ambassador Helio Castroneves in the overall season standings. ”I am very happy to get that third win (in Brazil) and third in a row,” said Power, who prevailed April 29 in the Chevrolet-powered No. 12 Verizon Team Penske car on the temporary street course by 0.9045 of a second over Ryan Hunter-Reay. “We need to make it four in a row. The most important race is next.”
That, of course, is the 96th Indianapolis 500, and drinking from a quart of milk over a magnum of champagne in Victory Circle has been Power’s goal since early in his junior formula driving days.
Opening Day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is May 12, and the May 27 race will mark to the date the 40th anniversary of Team Penske owner Roger Penske’s first Indianapolis 500 triumph when Mark Donohue drove the McLaren/Offy to victory. Penske-owned cars have earned 15 race victories and 16 poles – both records – in “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.”
