SÃO PAULO, Brazil – Will Power noted in the post-qualifying news conference that rain "might mix up the results" of the Itaipava São Paulo Indy 300 presented by Nestle.

He didn't mention anything about multiple full-course cautions because of multi-car contact.

The weather cooperated as early morning rain abated and the 2.536-mile, 11-turn concrete/asphalt circuit dried in time for the 75-lap race. And Power, the pole sitter, did his part, staying ahead of the trouble for his third consecutive victory of the season and the third in a row at the Anhembi circuit.

Power, driving the No. 12 Verizon Team Penske car, held off Ryan Hunter-Reay on a Lap 71 restart and won by 0.9045 of a second. Takuma Sato, who started 25th because of an unapproved Honda engine change and overcame a Lap 12 pit lane speed violation penalty, earned his first IZOD IndyCar Series podium finish.
