FONTANA, Calif. (AP) Will Power raced with his head instead of his gut. Only a catastrophe was likely to derail his IndyCar Series championship, and the Australian knew he had to throttle the aggression that has made his career - and occasionally wrecked it.

Yet after Power moved patiently and safely through the Fontana field, a restart gave him a chance to seize the lead, if only for a few laps.

Power couldn't resist. With one last daredevil move, he pulled in front for just long enough to ensure he wouldn't back into his long-awaited title.
