Power Dug Deep To Avoid Panic during Finale Flashpoint

It was on Lap 46 of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES’ season-ending race Sept. 11 at WeatherTech Laguna Seca that it seemed as if another season championship was about to slip from Will Power’s grasp. “Internally for us, there was (concern), for sure, and it must have been internally for him, too,” Faustino said of Power. Additionally, the race’s only caution came earlier than Faustino wanted, on Lap 39. “With how we qualified and went through the rounds, we didn’t have a lot of good tires to play with in the race,” Faustino said. In retrospect, Faustino can laugh at the message he delivered to Power. “At that point all we had to do was finish 10th,” Faustino said. Power said he had to “dig deep” in that important juncture in the race and didn’t feel secure until the final moments.
