Will Power quickest for second straight day in pre-season testing at Barber Motorsports Park

Australian racer Will Power continued to set the benchmark on the second day of pre-season IndyCar testing at the Barber Motorsports Park track in Alabama.

Power shot to the top with a best lap of 1:07.064 in his Penske Chevrolet to pip Dale Coyne incumbent Justin Wilson by .0038s.

The defending series champion, Kiwi Scott Dixon was third fastest in 1:07.079s.

Power’s team-mates, Juan Montoya (second yesterday) and Helio Castroneves (third yesterday) were ninth and sixth fastest respectively.

AJ Foyt Racing’s Takuma Sato was fourth quickest in 1:07.331s ahead of Chip Ganassi returnee Ryan Briscoe (1:07.370s).

Power, who turned 62 laps during the open test, is bracing himself for a tough opening encounter on the streets of St Petersburg on March 30.

“It was so cold today and there was so much grip that I think it was hard to get good reads on changes,” Power told

“We’ll see where we go and head to St. Pete. It’s going to be really tight.”
