Will Power, of Australia, waits in his vehicle during practice for the Grand Prix of Indianapolis IndyCar auto race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis, May 12, 2017.

Tell us what you thought of the 2017 INDYCAR Grand Prix from the road course at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The milestone victory pushed the 36-year-old Power ahead of current teammate Helio Castroneves and retired Team Penske legend Rick Mears for sole possession of 11th place on the all-time list.

Power and Castroneves have alternated winning the pole at the first five races this season.

"It's definitely a different deal", said Power, who is still looking for his first 500 win. "Everyone on this team has been working really hard". "I think the pace for us was encouraging".

"I was thinking the way he was closing he was gonna burn his tires off, but he didn't". Dixon's teammate, Max Chilton, matched his career-best Indy auto result with a seventh-place finish, while defending Indianapolis 500 champion Alexander Rossi finished eighth.

As well as Power had been driving all weekend, the fact that he was the quickest driver in every session never entered his mind until the morning's practice session. Yeah, it would be unbelievable to win the race'.

"Although the aerokit is the same as past year, the tires are very, very different".

Harvey suspended, Stanton hits 2 HRs, Marlins beat Mets 7-0
Harvey was 4-10 with a 4.86 ERA in 14 starts last season before undergoing surgery to fix thoracic outlet syndrome. Someone with Harvey's interest in mind says it was a "communication" issue , but the Mets are fed up either way.

"Beer is gonna taste good tonight", he said. And it came on a day Dixon broke a tie with Jimmy Vasser for the second-most consecutive starts in series history. Defending champ Simon Pagenaud will start seventh. He had won seven other races at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway prior to the Indy 500 and had come out of retirement to participate in the inaugural race-clearly his expertise paid off, as did his use of a makeshift rearview mirror, which was unusual at the time and almost banned.

"The first stint on the reds was extremely tough".

"Good points for everybody on the NTT Data vehicle, great day for Honda". The victory margin of 5.2830 seconds didn't even seem that close, and Ryan Hunter-Reay was a distant third.

Joey Logano will start second today, and Martin Truex Jr. third, while the drivers who failed to get through inspection will have to start at the back of the field based on points. We could either go conservative and pretty much guarantee ourselves eighth, or we could try something more ambitious and hope it got us in the top five.

"This guys comes like nothing happened", teammate Helio Castroneves said.

Though the main event in Indianapolis is still two weeks away, this should still be a thoroughly entertaining race. Each of the last three grand prix winners started on the pole, and each drove for Roger Penske. Simon Pagenaud knocked Castroneves to fifth on Lap 81. Pagenaud now has 191 points to Dixon's 181.

Drivers and teams will take Sunday off as track officials convert the speedway from a road course into an oval course. When the 2.5-mile oval opens for practice Monday, Alonso, will be back in town, chasing the second jewel in racing's triple crown.

It's time for the Month of May, which means the Verizon IndyCar Series is coming home to Indianapolis Motor Speedway and putting on its two biggest races of the year.
