Will Power has won the Honda Indy Toronto event on Sunday afternoon. He led the final 10 laps of the event after taking the lead from Tony Kanaan.

“The Verizon Chevrolet team has been doing a great job,” Power said. “Obviously, we have been playing catch-up all year, but every race they are executing. We are getting great strategies, great cares.

“We just have to keep chipping away, chipping away at this and see if we can have a shot at this. I don’t know what the points situation is right now, all I know is that we have to keep finishing ahead of the No. 22 (Simon Pagenaud) if we want a shot at the title.”

Hélio Castroneves finished in the second position, as Team Penske finished in the top two. Power drives a Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet, while Castroneves drives the Pennzoil Team Penske Chevrolet.

James Hinchcliffe finished in the third position. He took his Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda from the eighth position to the podium.

The aforementioned Kanaan finished fourth, while Japanese driver Takuma Sato rounded out the top five.

“A difficult weekend that ended quite sweet for the No. 14 car with a fantastic result after having had a difficult qualifying and then going through the field,” Sato said. “Larry and the engineers made the right call for the strategy and the ABC Supply Honda worked really well and the pit stops were really fantastic.

“I was able to overtake a few cars on track. We were able to save fuel, which was really right, but a couple yellows saved us. I’m proud of my guys, we achieves a really good result.”
