Will Power races to first IndyCar win
Edmonton: Will Power led almost the entire way Sunday to capture the Rexall Edmonton Indy in a race marred by a pit fire that burned driver Tony Kanaan`ss hands and face.
Power, the first-year driver for Penske Racing, finished 1.094 seconds ahead of teammate Helio Castroneves.
Target Chip Ganassi driver Scott Dixon was third.
Kanaan, the Brazilian driver for Andretti Green, was injured on his first pit stop when the ethanol fuel hose filling his car appeared to not shut off properly, dousing him and his car in fuel.
Seconds later the car caught fire, with Kanaan frantically struggling to free himself as crews doused his No. 11 Dallara Honda with water. Kanaan later waved to the crowd as he was led away for medical tests.
