Will Power won his second straight race at Infineon Raceway and then shared the podium with two of his teammates, who finished second and third.

Helio Castroneves and Ryan Briscoe completed a 1-2-3 sweep for Team Penske at the Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma, the first time that has happened for owner Roger Penske in nearly 20 years.

Power led 71 of the 75 laps while winning his second consecutive race from the pole at Sonoma, the same track where his career almost ended in 2009 after a terrible crash.

Power has a career-high five victories, one shy of the IndyCar single-season record.
