Q: What’s it gonna take to get by Scott Dixon today?

Power: “Hahaha I don’t know, yeah it’s definitely a track position race, so you know a good (pit) strategy. Obviously you have the start and all that. I don’t think you can do it just passing him on track so you have to do it through pit strategy.”

 

Q: If there were a place on track to pass Dixon, where would it be?

Power: “Probably up to the Bus Stop, that’s about it unless he makes a mistake somewhere else.”

 

Q: Do you have to get all the way around someone before the Bus Stop? Or can you take it two-wide through there?

Power: “If you do it side-by-side, I think you’ll be in good shape. On the inside mind you.”
