2014 Championship Prediction

I've been doing some thinking lately, and I've come to a conclusion: Will Power will win the 2014 Indycar championship. He came close three years running, and spent most of those dominating the street- and road-course races. At this point in time, all the remaining elements are falling into place. His victory in the 2013 finale was unusual for him-it was on an oval in a 500 mile race-and it was no fluke. He qualified on pole, led the most laps, and won the chaotic race. He called the win the best of his career. His critics have been silenced and, most importantly, he knows that he can take charge and win on the ovals that have bedeviled him up until this point.

In my opinion, it would be foolish to bet against the guy who is probably the best in the field at making up positions, at turning out fast lap after fast lap, and at conserving fuel. Oh, and he's easily the most entertaining to watch on the in-car camera.
