Mishaps knock Power, Dixon from Detroit Race 1 contention

Dixon, the normally unflappable five-time and reigning NTT IndyCar Series champion, hit the inside wall late in the 75-minute timed race and stuck his No. 9 PNC Bank Honda in the tire barrier at Turn 6 of the 2.35-mile, 14-turn temporary street circuit.
Power, whose luck in the No. 12 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet recently has been nothing short of lousy, had charged from 12th place to third early in wet but drying conditions and pitted under caution on Lap 19 for slick tires.
After the race, team owner Roger Penske – who calls Power’s race strategy – took responsibility for the miscue, saying he told Power to go from the pit stand.
