“Congratulations to Scott Dixon and his Target Chevy team for a fabulous strategic drive from dead last to win again at Mid-Ohio,” said Chris Berube, Chevrolet Racing Program Manager, Verizon IndyCar Series. “Scott did what most would say was too difficult and instead demonstrated a “Never Give Up” attitude by working the situation he was presented with. We are proud of what the team was able to accomplish today with a Chevy engine that went 94 miles beyond the 2,500 mile change-out limit during that epic drive. Kudos also to Sebastien Bourdais for starting on pole and bringing it home in P2. Team Chevy is still on a roll and focusing forward to the next race at The Milwaukee Mile.”

Chevrolet’s Will Power took over the top spot in the Verizon IndyCar Series championship point standings with a sixth-place finish in his No. 12 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet. Power was able to leap frog his Team Penske teammate Helio Castroneves for the lead in the standings after Castroneves experienced a stuck throttle prior to taking the green flag. Castroneves joined the race in his No. 3 Hitachi Chevrolet five laps down finishing 19th. Power now holds a four-point lead with three races remaining in the 2014 season.

"Will Power in the No. 12 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet persevered all race long to take the points lead back with three races to go,” Campbell added. “It is going to be an exciting championship battle to the end."
