IndyCar points leader Will Power has crashed out of the season finale at Auto Club Speedway. Power went into Saturday night's race with a 17-point lead over Ryan Hunter-Reay in the standings. The two were racing with each other near the back of the field on the 55th lap when Power lost control of his car and hit the outside wall. Hunter-Reay narrowly missed being collected by Power's spinning car. Power says he was pushing to get around Hunter-Reay and his car slipped in a seam in the track. He said it took him totally by surprise. It's the third consecutive year Power has gone into the season finale in contention to win the championship. The Australian was runner-up to Dario Franchitti the last two seasons.
