Gaughan went on to his second career victory in 111 starts by .878 seconds over Scott, followed by Dillon, Elliott, Regan Smith and part-timer Cale Conley in a top-six sweep by Chevys, including a 1-2-3 finish by Richard Childress Racing.

    Will Power, who had his championship dreams destroyed twice before when he crashed out of season-ending races, was overcome with emotion as he finally claimed his first IndyCar Series crown. I was crying when I crossed the finish line," said Power, who raced strategically to take the crown with a ninth-place finish in Saturday's season-finale at the Auto Club Speedway track. It was enough to give the Australian a 62-point victory over runner-up Helio Castroneves. Tony Kanaan won Saturday's 250-lap race to earn his first win since last year's Indianapolis 500.
