Will Power used every trick in his substantial arsenal on Saturday to keep Graham Rahal behind him to win the first leg of the Chevrolet Dual in Detroit, other wise know as the Detroit Grand Prix of Belle Isle.

It was also a win for Roger Penske, who pushed, planned and promoted the Verizon IndyCar Series race at Belle Isle in the middle of the Detroit River separating Canada and the U.S.

Power, driving the No. 12 Penske Racing Chevrolet, assumed the lead after Ryan Briscoe had to pit for fuel with half a dozen laps left in the 70 lap race.

Rahal, in the No. 15 Rahal, Letterman, Lanigan Honda, got up to Power’s rear several times but could not find the room to get past.

Tony Kanaan, with his best finish of the season was third in the No. 10 Target Ganassi Racing Chevrolet.

Justin Wilson, in the No. 19 Honda and Helio Castroneves in the No. 3 Chevrolet rounded out the top five.
