Will Power Puts Chevrolet in Victory Lane at Sonoma

For the third time in his IZOD IndyCar Series career, Will Power, driver of the No. 12 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet, stood atop the victory podium at Sonoma Raceway.  Power, who started third on the 25-car grid for the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma, was credited for leading once for a total of 16 laps of the 85-lap race on the way to his 19th career victory, and his first of the season.

"Congratulations to Will Power and the No. 12 Penske Verizon Chevrolet team for their win today at Sonoma Raceway,” said Jim Campbell, U.S. Vice President Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. “Will persevered, and it was great to see him back in the Winner's Circle."

The victory was the eighth of the year for the Bowtie Brand, and moved Chevrolet back to the lead in the battle for the 2013 Series’ Manufacturers’ Championship.

Team Chevy drivers notched a total of two of the top-five finishers, and seven of the top-10 in the final finishing order.
