Power looks to add to tally at Mid-Ohio

Will Power knows exactly where he stands heading into the Honda Indy 200 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

The winner of three of the last four races, Power is second in the season standings - 47 points behind Team Penske teammate Simon Pagenaud, and 27 ahead of fellow teammate Helio Castroneves.

"It's step by step each week, just keep chipping away at it," said Power, coming off a victory in Toronto.

"After a bit of a slow start we've gotten ourselves into the championship fight, but it's still a little early to be counting points. We just need to keep doing what we have been and let the points manage themselves."

Power has six top-five finishes this year. The Australian won the 2014 series championship and finished second in 2010, 2011 and 2012.

Drivers on Monday (AEST) will race 90 laps on the 13-turn, 2.258-mile course with tight turns and minimal opportunities to pass.

"Track position is the key so you have to qualify well," Power said.

None of his 28 career wins have been at Mid-Ohio, where he has finished second once in seven starts.
