PIT PASS INDY– SEASON 2, EPISODE 37 – Will Power wins the 2022 NTT INDYCAR SERIES Championship along with Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey race winner Alex Palou
September 12, 2022
Team Penske’s Will Power clinched the 2022 NTT INDYCAR SERIES championship with a third-place finish in the September 11, 2022, Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey. Power became a two-time INDYCAR SERIES champion by driving an extremely smart race and finishing third.
His closest pursuer in the championship, Team Penske teammate Josef Newgarden, finished second after starting 25th. But after Power won the pole on Sunday to earn one point and earned another point by leading a lap, all Power had to do was finish fifth on better.
Newgarden was unable to close the gap on eventual race winner Alex Palou of Chip Ganassi Racing and Power clinched the championship by 16 points over Newgarden in the final race of the season.
Pit Pass Indy host Bruce Martin has interviews with race-winner Alex Palou and an in-depth interview with two-time champion Will Power in this week’s championship edition.
