ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Will Power, who won the Verizon P1 Award on March 12 for capturing the pole position for today's Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, continues to feel the effects of a stomach illness and will not participate in this morning's warmup, the final practice before this afternoon's race.
Veteran driver Oriol Servia, who has made 197 career Indy car starts, will substitute for Power in the practice. A determination on Power's availability to drive in the 110-lap race will be made later this morning.
