FORT WORTH, TX - IndyCar Series points leader Will Power made a quick evasive move to avoid disaster just before his final pit stop Saturday night at Texas and held on for his first victory on an oval track.
Power raced to his third win of the season, and 12th of his career, to wrap up the first doubleheader in major open-wheel racing in 30 years. He kept his points lead over Dario Franchitti, the winner in the opener.
Franchitti led 110 of 114 laps in the first race, when Power finished third.
The starting spots for the second race were determined by a blind draw. Power started third and Franchitti was 28th in the 30-car field, working his way to a seventh-place finish.
Scott Dixon, Franchitti's teammate, was second in both races.
