Road to the Championship: Close Competition
Target Chip Ganassi Racing driver Dario Franchitti will enter his third consecutive title fight when he takes the track in the 2010 IZOD IndyCar Series season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway this Saturday Oct, 2 (VERSUS, 7:00 PM ET). Franchitti enters the race in the middle of the fourth closest IZOD IndyCar Series title hunt since 2005, trailing championship leader Will Power by only 12 points.
As the two-time and reigning Indianapolis 500 Winner (2007, 2010) and two-time IndyCar Series Champion (2007,2009), Franchitti enters the “Championship Track” for the third consecutive time in his career chasing the IndyCar Series title (2007, 2009, 2010) after spending the 2008 season in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
IndyCar.com caught up with Franchitti and Power during championship week in Miami to talk about the atmosphere and competition surrounding the IndyCar Championship.
