INDY 500: Power wants to win big one

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Will Power has 18 victories since moving to America, where he's one of the most decorated drivers in open-wheel racing.

But his resume has some glaring holes: He's never won an Indianapolis 500, and he's never won a championship.

"I'd just love to win something, just one time win something of significance," he said Thursday. "I'm so sick of it."

The most dominant driver in IndyCar the last three seasons isn't content with his results. And make no mistake, they are quite impressive.

In 44 career starts since joining Penske Racing, Power has 15 wins, 20 poles, 24 podiums and has led at least one lap in 34 races.

"You think about his record with Penske Racing over the last three years, and he's won almost one out of every three races he's been in, and he's been on the podium almost two-thirds of the time," Penske said. "It really establishes him, from the road racing perspective at least, as the top driver out there right now."

By Jenna Fryer

INDIANAPOLIS — Dario Franchitti stamped his name in the record books, the latest three-time winner of the Indianapolis 500. But this was not about Franchitti: It was all for Dan Wheldon.
