Recap

It was a clean start with Helio Castroneves getting the jump on his Polesitting teammate Simon Pagenaud in Turn One. By the time the field reached Turn Three Scott Dixon and his No. 9 would make contact with Will Power and put his Penske IndyCar into the wall. Both cars would have damage with Dixon's left rear going down, and Power with a broken front wing, and broken right front toe link. The result, the first yellow of the day.

Power said, "It surprised me, and its a reminder to myself to never, ever take a risk on the opening laps. It really makes it tough in the championship."

Dixon would pit and continue after getting a left rear brake duct replaced. Power couldn't make it back to his pitbox. But was pushed behind the wall for repairs.

On Lap 6, Castroneves led the field back to the green. The order, Castroneves, Simon Pagenaud, Graham Rahal, Josef Newgarden, and James Hinchcliffe.

Pitstops would start on Lap 22, Tony Kanaan would crash on cold tires while exiting the pits on Lap 24, Josef Newgarden would make it in to the pits before the yellow, and the leaders would get shuffled back under the second yellow of the race. Kanaan would lose two laps, but return to the race.

Newgarden would lead the field on the Lap 28 restart, with Ed Jones, Charlie Kimball, Alexander Rossi, and James Hinchcliffe following. Castroneves would resume in 14th, Pagenaud was 15th, and Rahal was 16th.

By Lap 40, the cars on the off strategy would pit. Newgarden would continue to lead followed by Rossi, Hinchcliffe, Marco Andretti, and Ryan Hunter-Reay.

On Lap 54, Newgarden would pit from the lead, Rossi and Hinchcliffe would match his strategy.

Newgarden would return to the lead by Lap 60, followed by Rossi, Hinchcliffe and they would all race hard to the finish.
