Interesting to see Ganassi right back at the front here, they haven’t done that too often this season. I have the race on record (1:30am is a touch too early/late for me) but will watch it first thing tomorrow. Should be intriguing!
Really good race. Amazing finish. Lots of real close wheel to wheel action. Hinchcliffe and Pagenaud were side by side for almost 6 laps at one point.
6 yellows (1 that became a red for rain), but generally quite clean racing
10 lap sprint to the end started with Kanaan and Dixon 1-2, Hunter-Reay came from almost nowhere. Think he was 6th at the restart.
Carpenter took out Montoya (for the final caution), who was pretty livid – he’d had a good run up to that point, twice fighting from way back. Newgarden was the biggest mover, grabbing 2nd at the death after starting 21st.
The pain of seeing JPM get chopped out of the race was wiped out when Newgarden surged to 2nd. If they had better luck for most of the season you’d be talking about him and SFHR as a winning team in 2014, on at least one, maybe two occasions.
