After 17 years and two titles, expect him to focus on IndyCar
Will Power notched the biggest victory of his career on Sunday when he won the Indianapolis 500 at the famed "Brickyard" just outside Indianapolis. Power moved into the lead on lap 196 when the two drivers in front of him pitted and he closed out the race to record his 34th career IndyCar victory. Power led for 59 of the 200 laps while stomping out his main racing demon.
Hits an eye-opening top performance of 227.791 mph.
The Indianapolis 500 is getting back-to-back Corvette pace cars. After a Corvette Grand Sport led the pack last year, a Corvette ZR1 will lead this year. The ZR1's participation means that it will be the 15th Corvette to pace the Indy 500. It will also be the 29th Chevy to do so.
"I've never been shy about my aim of winning motorsport's Triple Crown," Alonso says.
"I'll be back in GoDaddy green, driving the No. 7 Chevrolet with Tony Jr. in my ear again."

Honda engines like Alonso's have had a run of bad luck. One blew up on Friday.
"Today we ticked all the boxes," Fernando Alonso said.
"I think its a win-win situation."
"... When you are in your car and close the visor, you would like to have one mile per hour more. It's never enough."
