    Juan Pablo Montoya and Tony Kanaan finally caught up with Milwaukee Mile winner Will Power at the post-race celebration, lathering his head with cream puffs.

DHL also announced it would remain the primary sponsor of Hunter-Reay's No. 28 car another three years.

    With traffic ahead and teammate Juan Pablo Montoya closing in from behind, Will Power stepped on the accelerator.

Power added a little breathing room in the standings over second-place Helio Castroneves and boosted Team Penske's hopes for a season title with two races to go. ''We're a well-oiled machine right now with all three cars,'' Power said about the team that also includes Castroneves.
