This weekend, the IndyCar series raced at Portland International Raceway. Team Penske No. 12 Will Power went in with a slim 3 point lead in the championship, but opened up the points gap with a second place finish.
This year, a new-and-improved Will Power has emerged to make a legitimate run at the Championship. The old Will Power would publicly beat himself up about missed opportunities, falling into a viscous cycle. But this new Will Power has been consistent all year long, maximizing points above all else, and accepting that sometimes you just don’t have the winning car, He no longer loses his temper over poor results.
Has wild man Will (now a husband and father, a 15-year veteran with an IndyCar Series Champion and an Indy 500 win to his name) actually mellowed-out, and become Penske’s version of Scott Dixon?
