Will Power, who has the most interesting name in motorsports by the way, keeps saying he has no regrets about his career so far in the Verizon IndyCar Series.

I suspect that indeed he does, like those three consecutive second-place championship finishes in 2010, ’11 and ’12.

In each of those cases, Power pretty much shot himself in the foot, making a critical mistake in the final race of each of the missed championships.

This season, Power is atop the standings after the first two races and seems more focused than ever to get to that top rung on the podium.

On Saturday, he won the pole for Sunday’s Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park with a lap of one minute, 8.31 seconds.

And given that he has been involved in a couple of on-track incidents already, Power is willing to use the chrome horn if that is what it takes to get to that elusive championship.
