Live from the Camping World Grand Prix at The Glen: Power wins to give Penske first Glen IndyCar win

Just after the National Anthems at the Glen. (Keith McShea/Buffalo News)
Hello again on what is a beautiful Fourth of July in the beautiful Finger Lakes region. We'll be monitoring today's IndyCar event at Watkins Glen International, the Camping World Grand Prix at The Glen, when the race goes live -- television coverage begins at 3:30 p.m. but the race itself is scheduled to start at 3:55.

Before our green flag drops for the live chat at 3:45, check out today's coverage -- my story focuses on Team Penske sweeping the top three qualifying spots; Larry Ott's column is a great first-person view of a couple of laps around the road course here in a two-seater Indy car.

It is the first victory at Watkins Glen International for Team Penske, which has started from the pole in all six races here.

After the race, I'll be busy writing for Monday's paper, but you can feel free to give your opinion on the race in the comments section below.
