QUEENSLANDER Will Power has won his 32nd IndyCar race, claiming victory at Pocono Raceway, Pennsylvania for the second straight year.

It was the 36-year-old's third win of the season and he now sits fifth on the standings, 42 points behind Team Penske teammate Josef Newgarden, who leads.

Newgarden finished second at Pocono, while New Zealand veteran Scott Dixon maintained second in the championship with his sixth place.

Power rallied from a lap down to deny Newgarden.

"I just picked people off one by one," he said.

"Just be smart, You can never give up in IndyCar because you don't know what can happen. We got our lap back and made it to the front."

The championship next heads to Illinois before the final two races in New York state and California.
