Season finale is voted Individual Top Moment in LA

3.4.13 (via IndyCar.com) – The IZOD IndyCar Series’ return to Auto Club Speedway after a seven-year absence for its championship-crowning race has been voted the Individual Sports Top Moment for 2012.

The announcement was made March 3 during the eighth LA Sports Awards show in Beverly Hills, Calif.
 
The MAVTV 500, won by Ed Carpenter of first-year IZOD IndyCar Series team Ed Carpenter Racing, featured the subplot of the series championship showdown between Will Power of Team Penske and Ryan Hunter-Reay of Andretti Autosport. Power led by 17 points entering the 250-lap race on the 2-mile Auto Club Speedway oval.
 
Driving the No. 12 Verizon Team Penske car, Power crashed early in the race in Turn 2. The crew worked feverishly to repair the car, which returned to competition to force Hunter-Reay to claim a top-five finish to secure the title. The tense, compelling second half of the race, which featured 29 lead changes, fell in Hunter-Reay’s favor as he finished fourth to earn the championship by a scant three points.
