In the Winners' Circle
Mazak Corp., a long time technical sponsor for team Penske, rode into the winners’ circle at the recently completed 102nd edition of the Indianapolis 500.
Australian, Will Power, took the checkered flag at the 102nd edition of the Indianapolis 500. Mazak has been a technical sponsor of the team since 1994.
Will Power won after starting in the third position in his No. 12 Verizon Dallara/Chevrolet. Despite difficulties with mid-race fuel strategy, Mr. Power took his first lead on lap 108 and remained dominant throughout the second half of the race.
Mr. Power returned to the third position in the final 10 laps, a position that guaranteed his victory after the two leaders ran out of fuel before they could cross the finishing line. Team Penske drivers Josef Newgarden and Simon Pagenaud also finished in the top 10, while an accident in lap 145 ended Helio Castroneves’ quest for his fourth Indy 500 victory.
