It was his fifth victory on NASCAR's oldest, smallest circuit.

Crafton, who led 100 laps while Logano led 150, figured he might be in trouble with the two-lap finish.

  • Montoya holds off Power to give Penske 1-2 sweep at St. Pete (The Associated Press)

(AP Photo/Chris O'Meara)" align="left" border="0">

    There was never a doubt that Team Penske would win the IndyCar Series opener. After the four Penske drivers led every on-track session through the streets of St. Petersburg and qualified 1-2-3-4, the only question was which Penske driver would end the weekend celebrating in victory lane. Yet the Colombian pulled it off Sunday, when he grabbed the lead from teammate Will Power during green-flag pit stops, then slammed the door closed on Power's lone attempt to get back to the front. Montoya won his second race since his return last season to IndyCar, and it came at a track in which he struggled mightily a year ago.

    Colombia's Juan Pablo Montoya held off reigning series champion Will Power of Australia over the final 27 laps Sunday to capture the season-opening IndyCar St. Petersburg Grand Prix. In a battle of Penske Racing teammates, Montoya denied pole-sitter Power on a 10th-tun pass attempt in lap 101 where the cars made contact. Montoya went on to win by .9930 of a second. Montoya, the 2000 Indianapolis 500 winner who left US open-wheel racing for F1 in 2001, jumped to US stock cars in 2006 and stayed there until returning to IndyCar last year.

    Shane Long was the hometown hero as his 90th minute goal in a 1-1 draw with Poland at Lansdowne Road on Sunday night kept Ireland's Euro 2016 dreams alive. It looked for so long as if Slawomir Peszko's first-half goal would give Poland all three points and all but end Ireland's ambitions of going to France next year. It could be a key goal in Ireland's Euro campaign, as Martin O'Neill's side would have been six points off the pace had Poland matched Germany and Scotland, who also enjoyed Group D victories on Sunday.

    Reigning IndyCar champion Will Power of Australia led a Team Penske sweep of the top four qualifying spots for Sunday's season-opening Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. Power posted a lap of 1min 0.6931sec in the "Fast Six" final round of qualifying on the 1.8 mile (2.9 Km), 14-turn St. Petersburg temporary street circuit. Saturday's qualifying marked the competitive debut of the new aerodynamic package adopted this season by IndyCar as it bids to boost performance and improve safety. In the first two rounds of qualifying, Power -- who opened his championship campaign with a win in St. Petersburg last year -- twice lowered the track record that France's Sebastien Bourdais had held since the inaugural St. Pete Indy car race in 2003.

    IndyCar champion Will Power led a Team Penske sweep in qualifying for the long-awaited opener.

Montoya even hinted at what was to come after three Penske drivers paced the opening practice of the weekend. Asked if that early showing meant anything, he replied it was a surprise Penske wasn't 1-2-3-4 on the leaderboard.

    Roy Keane says the Republic of Ireland need to pull the welcome mat from beneath Poland's feet if they are to take three points from a crucial European Championship qualifier in Dublin on Sunday. Keane, the assistant to manger Martin O'Neill, has called for Irish fans and players to turn the Lansdowne Road stadium into the fortress of old. With Poland top of Group D, three points ahead of Ireland, Germany and Scotland, defeat for O'Neill's men could prove fatal to their dreams of making it to a second successive European finals -- and the omens aren't good.

    Will Power shook off a six-month layoff by pacing the opening practice of the IndyCar season. Power's title run began on this 1.8-mile, 14-turn temporary street circuit with a win in last year's opener. It was the first of three wins for the Australian, who finally broke through with his first series championship after losing three consecutive titles from 2010 through 2012. It's the same old story - nothing has changed for me, and I feel like I am even more motivated to go out this year and accomplish even more.'' He's had plenty of time to think about this season: IndyCar has not raced since the Aug. 30 finale, making this offseason one of the longest in series history.
