It's Will Power's Championship To Lose

Penske driver Will Power leads the 2014 championship standings going into the final race of the season in Fontana, CA.  He goes into the race with a lead of 51 points, nearly double the lead Scott Dixon had on Helio Castroneves going into Fontana last year.  But all is not won yet for Power, the 500 mile Fontana race is a double points race, meaning a maximum of 104 points are available to any one driver.  Five drivers are currently eligible to win the championship (although some unlikely), so we're going to take a look at how the points could play out:

The Battle For The #1 Driver Spot

The battle between teammates on a Formula 1 team is one of the best ways to see how a driver is stacking up in his car.  With the same car and performance, it's really up to the driver to prove himself against his teammate.  With the season on break right now, it's a good time to see how the inter-team battles are going within all eleven constructor's.

Mid-Ohio: Race Notes

With only four races left in the 2014 season, IndyCar heads to Mid-Ohio with Helio Castroneves in the lead.  Castroneves has 533 points and a 13 point lead on second place driver Will Power.  Mid-Ohio has the best chance of changing up the championship battle, as Castroneves has an average finish of ninth over the last three years at this track.
