No one knows better than Will Power that nothing comes easy in the IndyCar series finale.

Power has started the final race of the year in first place three times since 2010. But he's still chasing that elusive first championship.

Saturday's race in Fontana, California, might finally be Power's time.

Power will clinch the crown by finishing sixth or better. He has a 51-point lead over Penske teammate Castroneves, another elite driver in search of his first series title.
