In a race that fans won't soon forget as a thrilling conclusion to IZOD's IndyCar Series, it was Will Power who emerged victorious at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif.
Perhaps more importantly, though, Scott Dixon claimed his third IndyCar title with his fifth place finish, per Trackside Online.

Power's impressive performance shouldn't be overlooked, though. He had to hold off 2012 MAVTV 500 winner Ed Carpenter to pick up the win and he managed to maintain the lead in 103 laps through the finish in a race that was a classic battle of attrition.

A late start to the race offered fans a night atmosphere that made the stage all the more grand as all drivers looked to leave everything on the track to finish out the series.
From the outset Helio Castroneves and Will Power were right in the thick of things. Through 30 laps, Penske racing had the update for the two stars:
The race finished with just nine cars in running condition and that was mostly thanks to a crash that happened on Lap 110.
Overall, it was an eventful race to close out the series because of some great racing that took place at the front of the pack. No race is complete without plenty of lead changes and this race saw plenty of those.
