Lots of fans and scenic background. Team Penske IndyCar driver Will Power and his No. 12 Verizon Chevrolet has won the 2016 Kohler Grand Prix at the Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. For Power, it is his second win of the season, 25th of his IndyCar career. It is also his 27th major open-wheel racing win.

Tony Kanaan was thrilled to get his first podium of the year, and 69th of his IndyCar career. It is also his 75th major open-wheel podium.

Graham Rahal picked up his second podium of the year, and 21st major open-wheel podium. Rahal was the best Honda powered finisher.

Ryan Hunter-Reay would finish fourth while Helio Castroneves would come home fifth.

Simon Pagenaud would drop eight positions over the final laps to finish 13th. His championship points lead is now 74 over Castroneves.

Recap - 50 Laps

Will Power led the 22 IndyCar field to the green flag at Road America, and IndyCars were once again racing at the historic circuit. If was a clean start as the full field made it through the first five turns - largely in tact. Except for a short spin by Jack Hawksworth, who was able to recover and return to the race.

At Lap five, the front of the field held the order as they qualified: Power, Scott Dixon, Tony Kanaan, Simon Pagenaud and Graham Rahal - who had passed Helio Castroneves at the start.

On Lap 6, Scott Dixon - running second in the race and championship - would slow as his IndyCar would pull off at Turn Five from a lose of power.

Two laps later, Rahal would get past Pagenaud to move up to third.

Power and Kanaan would pit on Lap 12, while Rahal and Pagenaud would continue one more lap. Rahal would leap frog Kanaan for second. Kanaan wouldn't have any part of it, catching Rahal and passing him back at Canada Corner.

After the second set of pitstops, the order would remain the same.

On Lap 32 and 33, Simon Pagenaud would slice his way forward first getting past Rahal, and then Kanaan. Each time, he would use his push-to-pass to make the move stick.

On Lap 39 - after most pitstops had been completed - Connor Daly's left rear suspension failed and sent him into the tire barriers outside of Turn One. The result brought out the only full-course caution of the day. Daly would walk away, but was clearly dejected after a very good run.

On Lap 44, the field would restart with Power (blacks) up front, Pagenaud (blacks), Kanaan (reds) and Rahal (reds) following. The order would stay the same until Kanaan would capture Pagenaud on Lap 46, and Rahal would follow Kanaan through.

Next up, the IndyCar series will be racing on the Iowa Speedway short oval. Its always a thriller.
