Power confident of more IndyCar success

Australian IndyCar driver Will Power is full of confidence heading into this weekend's race in Ohio.

IndyCar championship contender Will Power goes into this weekend's race in Ohio full of confidence after his brilliant run through the back of the field last time out.

Power finished third in Edmonton, a result that dropped him behind teammate and eventual race winner Helio Castroneves in the title standings, but having started 17th it was a drive the Queenslander hailed as one of his best.

And as the championship comes down to the final four races of the season, Power is hoping the momentum gained from that drive will help him close the 26-point gap to series leader Ryan Hunter-Reay.

"That ranks right up there," Power told SpeedTV.com about his Edmonton efforts, which came about due to a 10-spot grid penalty for an unscheduled engine change.

"Taking that penalty and sitting there ... after making that mistake in the wet (second round of qualifying) knowing we had the fastest car in the dry and how that hurt our qualifying, I was so pissed off with myself.

"Then I started thinking we had a fresh engine that will be good to go through the last race, and maybe it was a blessing in disguise.

"It was just one of those races ... Unbelievable. It was all about execution. It ranks up there with Baltimore where I had to pull a 30-second gap."

Power and the rest of the IndyCar field face an altered set of racing regulations in Lexington this weekend.

IndyCar has introduced a five-second delay to the overtake assist for the 85-lap race at the 2.258 mile (3.63 km) road course, with the move designed to prevent drivers from using the push-to-pass program to defend against overtaking drivers.

Power has a solid record at the Mid-Ohio circuit, having finished second there in 2010 while New Zealand's Scott Dixon - fourth in the championship standings - is the only title contender to win there having taken victory in last year's race.

The action begins with practice on Friday and qualifying on Saturday before Sunday's race begins at 1pm local time (0400 Monday AEST).
