    should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of
    money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of
    those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so
    they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. SONOMA, Calif.
    -- In a yearlong celebration of Roger Penskes 50th season in racing, Simon
    Pagenaud brought yet another championship trophy to one of the most storied
    organizations in motorsports.The Frenchman won his first career IndyCar title in
    his sophomore season driving for Penske and did it in dominating fashion by
    winning the season finale Sunday at Sonoma Raceway.Pagenaud needed a smooth race
    to put a wrap on this breakthrough season.Instead, he picked up his fifth win of
    the year and led a strong Penske finish to the final podium. The Penske team
    went 1-2-3 in the final series standings, the first team to do so since another
    Penske trio pulled off the sweep in 1994.That was a strong run, and I take my
    hat off to the entire team, Penske said.A 14th IndyCar title -- and 29th in
    various forms of motorsports -- was guaranteed at the start of the race because
    only Pagenaud and teammate Will Power were mathematically eligible to win the
    title.Pagenaud entered the weekend 43 points ahead of Power but earned an
    additional point for winning the pole. Then he led the most laps and won a race
    that was worth double points in the standings.What Im thinking about right now
    is, its been a long career, Pagenaud said. You start, 7 years old. You go
    through a lot. I remember my first race in France in a go-kart. It was raining.
    I had my visor open because I had the wrong helmet.I still have that picture at
    home. The ground I covered since is quite incredible. I just feel so blessed to
    be a human that has been able to live his dream and get to this. I basically
    accomplished all the dreams I had.Pagenauds performance was a moot point,
    though: Power had mechanical issues 38 laps into the race that sealed the
    outcome.Obviously I saw Will slowing down, which I wanted this fight to go all
    the way, Pagenaud said. It was a bit of a relief, I have to say. I feel sorry
    for his luck.Instead of winning to unseat Pagenaud, Power instead finished 20th.
    Pagenauds final margin was 127 points, the largest points win since Alex Zanardi
    defeated teammate Jimmy Vasser by 119 points in 1998.It was pretty realistic
    considering it was [worth] double points, Power said. Its just how it flows.
    When its your year, its your year, and Simon has done a phenomenal job to lead a
    1-2-3 finish.Power finished second in the standings, Helio Castroneves was third
    and Chevrolet won its fifth consecutive manufacturers title since its return to
    IndyCar in 2012.Throughout the entire season, he was not only an amazing driver
    but a champion, Castroneves said of teammate Pagenaud. Really honored to be
    working with a guy like that. The whole team was a dream to work with, and today
    was the proof of that.Its the fourrth time Power has finished second in the
    standings, but it was easy to swallow because he won his only title in
    2014.dddddddddddd And he missed the season-opening race this year when IndyCar
    ruled him out with concussion-like symptoms -- it was an inner-ear infection --
    so climbing back into title contention was somewhat of a victory.If I hadnt won
    a championship, I guess it would be a pretty bad day, Power said. But finishing
    second, considering how I started the year, getting four wins, its a good year.A
    year after losing the title in the final race -- Juan Pablo Montoya led the
    standings wire-to-wire, but a Scott Dixon win in the finale cost Penske the
    championship on a tiebreaker -- the Penske organization cruised to the top of
    the series. The combination of Pagenaud, Power and Montoya won 10 of the 16
    races.Across all motorsports, Penske also achieved its 500th pole this year, its
    100th victory in NASCARs top Sprint Cup Series, and now an additional
    championship. The Penske team still has another shot: Brad Keselowski and Joey
    Logano both had top-five finishes Sunday in the opening race of NASCARs
    playoffs.GOODBYE TARGET: Scott Dixon didnt give sponsor Target the send-off it
    had hoped for after 27 years in IndyCar.Dixon started the day tied for third in
    the standings and tried to keep his streak of finishing third or better in the
    standings every year since 2007.But he had radio issues, had to change his
    helmet during a caution and finished 17th. It dropped him to sixth in the final
    standings. Its the lowest Dixon has finished since 2005.MONTOYA MOVING ON? If
    Sunday was the final race for Montoya driving for Penske, he closed out his
    tenure on a strong note.Montoya finished third at Sonoma to bookend the year
    with podium finishes. He won the season opener at St. Pete but had a significant
    drop-off the rest of the way.Although Montoya won the Indianapolis 500 for
    Penske last year, the team owner is unsure if hell bring the Colombian back next
    year. Penske hopes to make a decision within 60 days on if hell field a fourth
    car and who will drive it, and Montoya doesnt believe the door is closed yet on
    a return.ROOKIE OF THE YEAR: Alexander Rossi finished fifth Sunday to lock up
    top rookie honors for the IndyCar season.Rossi won the Indianapolis 500 for a
    huge bright spot on a season he otherwise believes failed to live up to
    expectations. Rossi had just one podium all year.He has yet to announce his 2017
    plans, and his name began to surface Sunday as a possible Penske driver next
    year.Wouldnt that be nice, Rossi said after the race.
