Will Power held off Scott Dixon over the final 20 laps to win his second straight Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama today at Barber Motorsports Park. The Team Penske driver, who started ninth after failing to advance into the Firestone Fast Six during yesterday's qualifying, assumed the lead shortly after the final pit stops of the afternoon and was able to keep Dixon in his rear view mirror the rest of the way.

Power's teammate, Helio Castroneves, followed up his St. Petersburg victory with a third-place finish that was hard-earned as he had to fend off Graham Rahal in the closing laps. After Rahal was Simon Pagenaud, who continued his strong start to the season with his first top-5 in IndyCar.

But perhaps the drive of the day award goes to Sebastien Bourdais, who overcame trouble in this morning's warmup session and surged in the final stages of the race to finish ninth -- giving Lotus their first top-10 finish as a series engine manufacturer.
