Brazil IndyCar preview  
Can Power win his 4th straight?
The Itaipava Sao Paulo Indy 300 presented by Nestle will mark the IZOD IndyCar Series' fourth visit to South America. Indy car racing has been extremely popular in Brazil; CART hosted five races on a 1.864-mile oval in Rio de Janerio from 1996 to 2000. The Sao Paulo Indy 300 will feature three Brazilian drivers - Ana Beatriz, Helio Castroneves and Tony Kanaan. Can any of these drivers become the first Brazilian to find their way to Victory Lane in their home country?

Power looks for four in a row on streets of Sao Paulo

The Itaipava Sao Paulo Indy 300 is the fourth and final street/road event of the IZOD IndyCar Series' first quarter. Will Power is the only driver to win on the streets of Sao Paulo but hasn't found winner's circle since last year's race. Can Power break his winless drought and see the checkered flag first again in 2013?

Castroneves looks to continue points haul

With podium finishes in two of the first three races, Helio Castroneves leads the IZOD IndyCar Series standings. Can Castroneves continue his strong start to the 2013 season and build upon his points lead by scoring a popular home win in Sao Paulo?

Hunter-Reay seeks first Brazil win

2012 IZOD IndyCar Series champion Ryan Hunter-Reay has had success in Brazil, finishing second in 2010 and 2012 in Sao Paulo. Hunter-Reay has already won in 2013. Can claim win No. 2 on the challenging street circuit?

Dixon off to another strong start

Target Chip Ganassi Racing's Scott Dixon has staked an early claim to the 2013 crown. The New Zealand native has two top-five finishes in the first three races of the season, including his fourth consecutive second-place finish at Barber on April 7. Can Dixon continue his strong start and take his first victory at Sao Paulo?

Is luck changing for resurgent Andretti?

Offseason focus paid off in a podium finish for Marco Andretti, who is off to the best start of his career. Andretti has posted three straight top-10 finishes for only the third time and sits fourth in the standings. Can Andretti continue his strong start and add a win in Brazil?

Keep an eye on Simona

A strong sixth place at St. Petersburg showed that Simona de Silvestro is ready to have a breakout season. The Swiss driver looked poised to make a podium finish in her KV Racing Technology debut before fading to sixth. Can the Swiss Missile hit the target at Sao Paulo and become the third first-time winner in the first four races of 2013?
