SPARTA, Ky. (AP) ¿ Brad Keselowski won't soon forget an eventful Saturday night in which the same right hand that held the winner's trophy was soon bloodied and bandaged after he broke a champagne bottle celebrating.
The Grand Prix of Baltimore was IndyCar points leader Will Power's chance to wrap up his first title on a street course, the kind of race track that is his forte. He couldn't do it. Now he has to go to Fontana, Calif., to a 500-mile race on an oval. The mere thought of it is enough to make Michael Andretti, who owns the car driven by Power's main foe, Ryan Hunter-Reay, just a little bit cocky.
Will Power is still enamored by the streets of Baltimore. A year after he won the inaugural Grand Prix here, he still calls the post-race victory celebration on the podium, "the best ceremony I've had in my career!" He comes back to town this weekend to try to make it two in a row and set the stage for what he hopes will be his first IndyCar championship.
