Scott Dixon and his No. 9 Ganassi Honda has won the 2019 Detroit Grand Prix Duel Two on the Belle Isle temporary street circuit. For Dixon, it is his first win of the 2019 IndyCar season and 44th major open-wheel victory of his career.

Finishing second, Marcus Ericsson and his No. 7 Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda would claim his first career IndyCar podium.

In third, Will Power and his No. 12 Team Penske Chevrolet would grab his second podium of the year, and 72nd of his major open-wheel career.

Ryan Hunter-Reay and Alexander Rossi would round out the top five finishers.

Josef Newgarden continues to lead the IndyCar points championship by 15 over Alexander Rossi.


Josef Newgarden and his No. 2 Team Penske Chevrolet would lead from Pole. Alexander Rossi and his No. 27 Andretti Autosport Honda would slot in behind. Entering Turn Three, Patricio O'Ward, Tony Kanaan and Simon Pagenaud would all get caught out leading to a full-course yellow. Others making contact but continuing were: Matheus Leist, Felix Rosenqvist, Will Power, and Marco Andretti.

Newgarden and 15 others would pit and take on new tires - intimating a three-stop strategy. Most would take on the black tires. Newgarden would drop back to seventh.

Green flag racing would resume on Lap 8 with Scott Dixon at the point. Spencer Pigot, Santino Ferrucci, Graham Rahal and Max Chilton would follow. All on the two stop strategy. One lap later, Newgarden was up to fifth.

On Lap 14, Dixon's and Pigot's red tires would fade. Ferrucci would take the lead followed by Rahal, Newgarden, Rossi and James Hinchcliffe. Dixon would pit just as Sebastien Bourdais would get together with Pigot who slashed across the front of his IndyCar to enter pitlane. Bourdais' nose would fly off as he rear-ended Pigot and rode downtrack on his two rear wheels.

Racing would resume on Lap 21 with Ferrucci in front, Rahal second, Newgarden third, Rossi fourth, and Hinchcliffe fifth. Rossi would be the first of the leaders to stop - Lap 28. Newgarden would stop on the next lap and return to the track just ahead of Rossi. Rahal would hold out until Lap 32.

On Lap 33, Rossi would go to the inside of Newgarden entering Turn Three. Hinchcliffe would be on cold tires as the trio tried to make it a go through a single-wide corner. All would spin, but Rossi would continue while Newgarden and Hinchcliffe would hit the barriers. The third full-course caution of the day would ensue.

After all the pitstops - and choice to not make stops - Scott Dixon would lead the field back to green on Lap 40. Marcus Ericsson, Takuma Sato, Ryan Hunter-Reay, and Marco Andretti would follow. Dixon and Hunter-Reay would pit on Lap 45 - for the last time. Ericsson, Sato and Andretti would all follow on the next lap.

Dixon would lead the pack after the final pitstops. Ericsson, Ed Jones, Power and Hunter-Reay would follow. Jones would pit on Lap 55.

The third full-course yellow of the afternoon would fly for the engine stricken IndyCar James Hinchcliffe who would be parked quietly at the side of the road.

With 12 laps to go, Dixon would jet away from the field. Ericsson, Power, Hunter-Reay and Rossi would chase. With 8 laps to go Dixon's lead would be three seconds.

With five laps to go, Felix Rosenqvist would crash and bring out the red flag. Apparently touching the wall and racing with a bent toe-link. He would be unable to make the next turn. After a short delay, the race would restart with three laps to go.

Dixon would get the restart right and go on to victory!

Congratulations to Scott Dixon and Chip Ganassi Racing winners of the 2019 Detroit Grand Prix Duel Two!

Next up, The IndyCar series will be back on ovals at Texas Motor Speedway next weekend.
