Will Power is the points leader and is a serious contender for the championship this season as he has been good on the road and street circuits but also the ovals. With only 9 races to go in the 2010 season, it will be interesting to see if Power can hold off Scott Dixon, Dario Franchitti and his teammates Helio Castroneves and Ryan Briscoe.
