Will Power was on a critical mission Sunday, to finally win the Indianapolis 500 and prove that he belonged amongst the higher echelons of drivers.Despite an enviable IndyCar career, including a series championship, the 37-year old was still in the shadow of his teammates at Penske Racing, which has 16 previous victories in the iconic race and the Brickyard had become his Moby Dick after finishing second in 2015 .Ironically, Power came to the team as a part-time replacement driver for three-time Indy 500 winner Helio Castroneves, in 2009 who was involved in litigation.Even before that year's Indy 500, Power finished second at Long Beach and later won in Edmonton, Canada to earn a full-time drive for 2010 .
