Team Penske's Will Power took victory in Toronto after a well timed final pit stop.

Power pitted on Lap 58, just as the caution came out for Josef Newgarden's wreck, putting him in prime contention once the rest of the pack filtered through the final fuel stop.

The caution flag would once again fly on Lap 82 as both Jack Hawksworth and Juan Pablo Montoya found the tire wall, setting up on a one-lap dash for the cash.

Power had his teammate Helio Castroneves to contend with on the restart, luckily for Power he had conserved his push-to-pass allotment, having six 15-second bursts of overboost at his disposal for the final lap.

He would cross the line 1.5275 seconds ahead of Castroneves, followed by hometown hero James Hinchcliffe.

The win was Power's third in the last four races and has propelled him back into contention for the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series championship.

"We've been playing catch-up all year but every race we're executing, getting great strategies, great cars," Power, who missed the series opener in St. Petersburg due to medical reasons, told IndyCar.com post-race. "We've just got to keep chipping away, man, keep chipping away and see if we can have a shot at (the championship)."
