Will Power held off pole winner Mikhail Aleshin by 1.1459s to win today's ABC Supply 500 at Pocono Raceway. It was the 29th career and fourth victory of 2016 for the driver of the No. 12 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet. And as an added bonus for Power, the win moved the 2014 series champion to within 20 points of series leader Simon Pagenaud. The Frenchman finished 18th after a lap 157 crash.
by Mark J. Cipolloni It was a day of firsts at Pocono International Raceway Saturday where the IndyCar Series was qualifying for the ABC Supply 500. It was the first IndyCar pole for Mikhail Aleshin and it was the first time a Russian driver will sit on the pole for an IndyCar race. Aleshin trimmed the car out and had a couple of moments in Turn 1 but it was the fastest speed and pole for the #7 Schmidt Peterson SMP Honda. Josef Newgarden will start 2nd for Ed Carpenter Racing ahead of Takuma Sato in AJ Foyt's Honda.

by Brian Carroccio Two weeks ago after Toronto, I mentioned how we were entering the stretch run of the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series Championship. And to me, the three players to keep an eye on were championship leader Simon Pagenaud, the suddenly hot Will Power, and reigning series champion Scott Dixon. Dixon, of course, endured a frustrating race in Toronto. Having dominated from pole, the Kiwi was 'caught out' on a yellow flag and forced to pit. Power cycled to the front, while Dixon came home 8th. Although the championship gap between Dixon and Pagenaud was sizable, I wrote that you couldn't discount the Kiwi.
