Will Power will look to seek revenge, and gain momentum on points leader Dario Franchitti as the series heads to Edmonton, Alberta this weekend.
Power won this race in 2009, but two-time winner Scott Dixon will look to add another trophy to his collection, while battling Power for second place in the Championship standings.
The new 2.256-mile, 13-turn layout will challenge drivers and provide plenty of action for fans. The 90-degree first turn is going to be filled with drama, especially during the double-file restarts. There also are two long straights for drag racing that should provide plenty of passing opportunities. Sunday afternoon’s race will present some new changes for the teams and drivers.
Edmonton is a tourism hot spot, boasting the world’s largest shopping mall, the largest stretch of urban parkland in North America, and an array of diverse attractions. They will once again show strong support for Canadian drivers Paul Tracy, Alex Tagliani, and James Hinchcliffe. This weekend though, all eyes will be on Power, Franchitti and Dixon.
