Milwaukee Indy Fest 2014-- Part 5

Winner of the race was Will Power who had finished #8 at the Indy 500 in May.  he led for 229 of the 250 laps, including the last 59, although much of it I was unaware of because of the usual race confusion (for me).  He only gave up the lead during pit stops.

He finished the race in 1 hour, 44 minutes and 49 seconds with an average speed of 145.243, the fastest-ever race time on this track.  At the end, he was challenged by Tony Kanaan and Juan Pablo Montoya.

After the race, and with the stands essentially empty, Will Power of Australia, who leads the Indy Car overall race, received customary champagne and Wisconsin State Fair Cream Puffs, the latter mostly in the face.
