WITTMANN THE MAN AT THE RING

Marco Wittmann has his maiden DTM title within reach. Thanks to a faultless performance in the seventh round of the season at the Nürburgring, the German BMW M4 DTM driver extended his lead in the drivers’ standings even further. Mattias Ekström, the 24-year-old’s fiercest rival, retired from the race following a collision in the opening stages. “This is a great success for us. Slowly, we can really start talking about the title. Towards the end of the race, it still was a little close, because Mike Rockenfeller was able to close up. I think that his tyres were better than mine in the closing stages of the race. Now, we have to continue like this,” Wittmann enthused after his lights-to-flag victory. In total, 80,000 fans visited the DTM event in the Eifel.

POWER ON TOP IN MILWAULKEE

Australia's Will Power led 229 laps to dominate the ABC Supply Wisconsin 250 at Milwaukee IndyFest and take command of the Verizon IndyCar Series championship standings with two races left. Power, the pole sitter in the No. 12 Verizon Team Penske entry, turned away challenges by Tony Kanaan and teammate Juan Pablo Montoya to win by 2.7949 seconds over Montoya on the historic Milwaukee Mile. Kanaan finished third for his fourth podium in the past five races and Target Chip Ganassi Racing teammate Scott Dixon placed fourth. Josef Newgarden, who was running third when he had to pit for fuel on Lap 237, rebounded for his second consecutive top-five finish on an oval. It was the first victory at Milwaukee, the first on a short oval and the first on an oval since Auto Club Speedway last October for Power, whose 24th career win matched Bobby Rahal and Ralph DePalma for 16th on the all-time list. "The handling was awesome; we hardly made any adjustments over the whole race," Power said. "I give full credit to the team for giving me such a great car. These are my favorite tracks these days. I really enjoy the ovals - it's great fun. I hope we put a good show on for the fans."
