Will Power (
No. 12 Team Penske Verizon Chevrolet Turbo V6/Dallara) took control over the final 100 laps of the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 presented by Axalta and Valvoline on Saturday night to pick up his third win of the season. He finished 1.3117 seconds ahead of Alexander Rossi (No. 27 Andretti Autosport NAPA AUTO PARTS Honda Turbo V6/Dallara) for the 35th victory of his career and tied Bobby Unser for seventh most in Indy car history. "We had so much speed in hand, it was kind of fun," Power said. "I've never passed so many cars. You just keep knocking people off one after another. That's the most fun way to go racing is when you can just go hard, you don't have to think about lifting and being in a lean fuel slot." Power passed Dixon for first place on Lap 150 of 248 on the 1.25-mile oval. Roger Penske, who called the race for Power, told the 37-year-old Australian to forget about saving fuel and just go for it. Power then sped away to a gap of more than seven seconds before making his final pit stop for a splash of ethanol 18 laps from the end. Power is now third in the standings 68 points behind leader Scott Dixon (No. 9 Chip Ganassi Racing PNC Bank Honda Turbo V6/Dallara), who finished third in the race. Dixon led 145 laps from the pole position and earned his eighth top-three result of 2018. The four-time series champion has seen his lead shrink from 62 to 26 points over the past three races despite finishing in the top five each time. Rossi, with his third straight podium finish following a pair of wins, maintained second in the championship and crept within 26 points of Dixon with two races remaining. Next up for the Verizon IndyCar Series is the Grand Prix of Portland on Sept. 2, marking Indy car racing's return to Portland International Raceway for the first time since 2007. The race airs live at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN and the Advance Auto Parts INDYCAR Radio Network.

Sebastian Vettel (No. 5 Scuderia Ferrari) reduced Lewis Hamilton's (No. 44 Mercedes AMG Petronas) championship lead to seventeen points after delivering a dominant victory in the Belgian Grand Prix at 
Spa-Francorchamps. Vettel passed pole-sitter Hamilton on the opening lap of the race and finished eleven seconds ahead of his rival. Max Verstappen (No. 33 Aston Martin Red Bull) finished third. Fernando Alonso (No. 14 McLaren F1 Team) was sent airborne over Charles Leclerc (No. 16 Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team) after Nico Hulkenberg (No. 27 Renault Sport Formula One Team) crashed into the back of the Spaniard's McLaren before Turn 1. All three drivers were fortunate to walk away from the spectacular crash with Alonso suggesting that the halo, the cockpit protection device controversially introduced this season, may have avoided serious injury to Leclerc.

Boris Said (
No. 21 Monster Energy/ Weaver Concepts Dodge Challenger) won the Ryan Companies Road America Classic Trans Am at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, on Saturday. Said would edge Chris Dyson (No. 20 Plaid Crafts Ford Mustang) for the TA class victory. Said started in third position but moved up to second shortly after the start. Said would settle into the pursuit of race leader and pole sitter Lawrence Loshak (No. 2 Pennzoil/ ETE Chevrolet Camaro) until the Loshak had to pit with power steering issues. Said assumed the lead and, despite several strong challenges from Dyson, stayed in front for the checkered flag for his third career Road America victory — the previous wins coming in 1995 and 2002. “I’m just proud,” said Said. “I won my first Trans Am race here 24 years ago. To race this great brand new car, built by Pancho Weaver, and to represent Monster Energy is a great opportunity. Monster has been a sponsor of mine for a long time; I’m probably their oldest athlete at 55 — it’s an iconic brand in America.  What Mark Hall, Rodney Sacks and Mitch Covington have done is amazing, and I truly appreciate their support. To get a win for them makes me really proud.” The win is the first of 2018 for both the Weaver Racing team and the Dodge Challenger model, while Road America marks Said’s third appearance this season after coming out of retirement to return to the TA class with Weaver Racing. “What’s great about it is you have over 800 horsepower,” said Said. “You don’t have any electronic aids, no ABS, no traction control — it’s old school; you really have to drive it. The GT3 cars I’d been driving were just getting boring; the ABS and traction control just take the finesse out of it. That’s why I retired last year; to drive these cars with the horsepower and the grip is just a blast.” It was the fourth podium of the year for Dyson while Cliff Ebben, of nearby Appleton, Wisconsin, finished third in the No. 36 Stumpf Ford/McMahon Group Ford Mustang.
