2010 Indiana State Fair

A day after clinching the Mario Andretti Road Course Championship with a second-place finish at Mid-Ohio, Will Power celebrated by taking his first trip to the Indiana State Fair.

The Australian joined a group of friends for night of unique food, rides and games in hopes of winning stuffed prizes for his fiancée, Elizabeth Cannon – though Cannon was more successful in winning her own prizes.

Power’s hometown of Toowoomba, Australia hosts a similar event called the Carnival of Flowers every September (spring in the Southern Hemisphere).

“We don’t have food like this in Australia,” Power quipped as he sampled a foot-long corn dog and deep-fried Milky Way candy bar. “We have Gator-on-a-stick and Wombat-on-a-stick.”
