Will Power overtook race leader Ryan Briscoe (NTT Data Chip Ganassi Racing, Chevrolet) on a Lap 60 restart and then held off Graham Rahal over a 10-lap sprint to win Chevrolet Indy Dual in Detroit presented by Quicken Loans Dual 1. "(Rahal) was really pushing me at the end and it was a great victory for Roger, the (crew) guys and Verizon," said Power, who started 16th in the Team Penske (Chevy) car and tied Tommy Milton for 18th all time with his 23rd Indy car victory...

Its been way too long, but J&L have come together again for another episode of Metal. A bunch has gone down since we last tickled your ear-buds and the guys touch on some of that in this installment. The Queensryche saga/settlement is discussed and if that saga wasn't enough...we have a similar saga on our hands in the Entombed camp with two versions of said band now floating around. The guys also talk about the Tim Lambesis conviction and find it quite funny that he and As I Lay Dying were a “Christian” band. The guys are stoked about news that Pepper Keenan wants to get back to writing and playing with C.O.C and touch on the stepping down of Angela Gassow from Arch Enemy and the stepping in of Alissa White-Gluz. To round things out, new records from Prong and Mos Generator are heralded by Loond before our duo departs to see Red Fang, Big Business, and American Sharks at Fitz.

Mercedes locked down the front row of the grid, last year’s winner Nico Rosberg besting teammate and 2008 Monaco champion Lewis Hamilton. 2014 points-leader Hamilton continued to whine, this time feeling Rosberg had unfairly impeded his progress on course, preventing him from taking the pole.
Hamilton had won four straight races coming into Monaco and started on the front row for every race of the season. Rosberg, second in the drivers’ championship by just 3 points, won the first ...
