Will Power goes 2-for-2, wins IRL's Honda Grand Prix

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Will Power has won the rain-delayed
Honda Grand Prix, his second IndyCar victory in as many races this

Power and Justin Wilson ran away from the field late, but Wilson
could never make a great run at the lead in the final laps. Power
prevailed by nearly a full second Monday, with Ryan Briscoe third and Helio Castroneves one spot behind him - that duo giving Penske Racing three of the top four spots.

Power was the polesitter after qualifying Saturday, and was the fastest driver in every practice session but one all weekend.

The race was scheduled for Sunday before thunderstorms put much
of the 1.8-mile street circuit under water. A total of 4.03 inches of rain fell in a span of about 19 hours, but the course was fairly dry when the green flag finally fell Monday morning.
