Team Penske’s Will Power: an in-depth and revealing interview

February 22, 2022

Pit Pass Indy features an in-depth and revealing interview with Team Penske driver Will Power.

The 2022 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season begins with this weekend’s Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. Team Penske driver Will Power is a two-time winner on the streets of St. Petersburg with victories in 2010 and 2014. He is also an eight-time pole winner at St. Pete, most recently in 2020.

The most revealing aspect of Pit Pass Indy host Bruce Martin’s interview with Power is the driver’s description of the horrific crash at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on October 16, 2011. The 15-car pile-up sent Power’s car airborne 25 feet into the air and into the fence. Power suffered a broken back in the crash, but when his car came to a stop, it was facing the damaged car containing Dan Wheldon, who was killed when his head hit one of the fenceposts supporting the wheel-fence after his car had also launched into the fence.

Power admits how that sight continues to haunt him to this day and still causes panic attacks.

As for the 2022 season, Power believes he can return to championship form and also looks to the future, after his racing career is over.

With 40 career wins and 62 career poles, the series championship in 2014 and an Indianapolis 500 victory in 2018, Power has firmly established himself as one of the great drivers in INDYCAR racing.

Pit Pass Indy host Bruce Martin conducted an in-depth and revealing interview with Power from his home on Lake Norman, North Carolina as the Team Penske driver prepares for this weekend’s Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg the latest episode of the Pit Pass Indy.
