Will Power shines through at Indy 500

Will Power

Grainger and Worrall sends it congratulations to Will Power and Chevrolet after victory in the Indianapolis 500 this week. The win was Power’s first in the sport’s biggest race, and his 34th career IndyCar victory overall.

The 37-year-old Australian controlled the first quarter of the race but didn’t hold the lead for good until Stefan Wilson and Jack Harvey were forced to abandon a fuel conservation play in the final laps. With four laps remaining, Power pushed on to hold first place in the 102nd running of the greatest spectacle in racing.

Behind every good driver is a great engine and our congratulations also go to GM and Ilmor Engineering, who manufacture the Chevrolet engines. Grainger and Worrall is proud to supply all major engine castings to Ilmor. After all, it’s as IndyCar Program Manager, Rob Buckner said following the race: “You can’t build race winning engines without excellent castings.”
