Dario Franchitti is at the peak of his
driving prowess, a second Indianapolis 500 victory still in his
rearview mirror and another IndyCar Series title within reach.

Dario Franchitti of Scotland celebrates at the start/finish line after winning the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday.

Dario Franchitti is at the peak of his
driving prowess, a second Indianapolis 500 victory still in his
rearview mirror and another IndyCar Series title within reach.

Confident and seemingly always in control, Franchitti is 41
points behind series leader Will Power after winning at Mid-Ohio
two weeks ago. That puts him in good position with this weekend's
race at Infineon Raceway, where he's the defending champion, and
four ovals left on the schedule.

Franchitti also has, at just 37, become a sort of an elder
statesman for the series, a driver whom the others look to when
something on the track or the series needs to be addressed.
