Okay, so you know the whole controversy surrounding whether or not Roger Penske has some "special parts" for his team's Dallaras? I'm not qualified to speculate on that - either from an engineering or paranoia standpoint - but I know one thing for sure, and that's the fact that the only special part Penske needs in his cars at a road course is WILL BLEEPING POWER.

Can you believe this guy didn't have a full-time ride before this season? Well, actually, yes I can, because it seems like there are lots of talented IndyCar-capable drivers without full-time (or even part-time) rides these days. But Will's got one now, and unless Penske decides that cocker spaniel pictures and wakeboarding reports on Twitter are more important than RACE VICTORIES AND TROPHIES, he's going to keep it even if Roger downsizes going into next year.

But don't take my word for it - ask the poetry gods!...

Power was so fast,
He took the checkers before
Milka took the green.

Which was it, Taku?
Banzai, or kamikaze?
A cultural move.

Frico Suave sad.
Had to move over for Scott.
Ashley dances still.

Bad race for Swiss Miss.
She seemed to hit everything
Except the pace car.

With five laps to go
You should not go to a break...
Side-by-side or not.

The old "spin and win"
Did not apply to Wheldon.
Can't win from your roof.

A KVR wrecked?
At this point I am not shocked
Unless they do not.

Challenging racetrack.
Needs more fans and landscaping.
Still seems too barren.

Power won the wine.
A classic vintage, I'm sure.
Not Andretti kind.

No more road courses.
Only left turns from now on.
Danica's relieved.
