August 25, 2018

Will Power added another oval win to his resume, as the Team Chevy driver claimed victory at Gateway Motorsports Park.

 

Power, the 2018 Indianapolis 500 winner, started fourth in the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 in his No. 12 Chevy from Team Penske after qualifying was rained out. He maintained a top-five running position throughout the first half of the event, then made a pass for the lead on Lap 150 of 248. He opened up a lead of more than seven seconds before making his final pit stop. He regained the top spot on Lap 240 -- when many competitors were in fuel-conservation mode -- and led until the finish.

TAKUMA SATO WINS THIRD ANNUAL BOMMARITO AUTOMOTIVE GROUP 500
August 24, 2019

Takuma Sato held off a charging Ed Carpenter by .0399 of a second Saturday to win the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 presented by Axalta and Valvoline in the closest Indy car race in the 10-year history of World Wide Technology Raceway.

 

Sato (No. 30 Mi-Jack/Panasonic Honda) of Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing overcame early issues that sent him to the rear of the field, but also put him out of sequence with the leaders. The misfortune ultimately put him in a position to win by virtue of the timing of the cautions. It was Sato’s second win of the season – the other came at Barber Motorsports Park – and fifth of his career.

He held off a hard-charging Pato O’Ward in the final laps until the 2020 Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge winner Takuma Sato made contact with the wall in Turn 2 with four laps to go, resulting in a caution and an end to the race.
