Power became the second Australian race car driver to win an event on Sunday. Daniel Ricciardo dominated the Monaco Grand Prix in Formula One.
He picked up 108 points for the win. Prior to Sunday, his best finish was second in 2015.
Power went a decade without winning before drinking the milk and kissing the bricks on this Memorial Day weekend.
Ed Carpenter, who was on the pole for the race, finished second. The Fuzzy’s Vodka sponsored and owner of Ed Carpenter Racing led 65 laps and picked up 92 points.
