Blimey, Bourdais was lucky not to completely lose it but he's going to have to pit.

I wonder if this is related to his 2nd Lap incident?

Congrats to RH-R on a well deserved win, his first since Pocono in 2015, that's not to take anything away from Rossi.

Race 2 result:

Like Race 1 Honda dominated. Chevy salvaged a little pride with Power's second place, though that was due to Rossi taking himself out of contention. He was second in the driver's championship, before this weekend but drops down to third. Last year's double winner Graham Rahal finished 5th, having had a DNF in Race 1.

1 Ryan Hunter-Reay, Andretti Autosport. Dallara/Honda. 1h33m50.5784s
2 Will Power, Team Penske. Dallara/Chevrolet. 11.3549s
3 Ed Jones, Chip Ganassi Racing. Dallara/Honda. 13.2291s
4 Scott Dixon, Chip Ganassi Racing. Dallara/Honda. 13.7652s
5 Graham Rahal, Rahal Letterman Lanigan. Dallara/Honda. 16.6280s
6 Robert Wickens, Schmidt Peterson Motorsports. Dallara/Honda. 34.9398s
7 Tony Kanaan, AJ Foyt Enterprises. Dallara/Chevrolet. 41.6328s
8 Charlie Kimball, Carlin. Dallara/Chevrolet. 47.3553s
9 Marco Andretti, Andretti Herta. Dallara/Honda. 56.6293s
10 Simon Pagenaud, Team Penske. Dallara/Chevrolet. 59.5891s

Good to see Racer had the video for us, bit much throttle there.

And hilarious to see HPD tweet a fun response to the Vette spinning instead of something mean.

Wow, RHR was on an absolute mission there. Newer tires than Rossi to be sure, but even so, he was absolutely blazing along. Enjoyed seeing him win, it's been a long time since his last one.

How come this takes so long? I'm sure they had five of those Vettes in the garage.
I think they said they had to fit a transponder to it... surely they didn't have to pull it off the other car too???

Agree with the comment about helmets. Silly not to wear them. Pace car speed isn't exactly slow after all.

I doubt there are 5 ZR1's laying around, I bet they had those two. That car is brand new and in high demand. Pace car speeds are nothing like a safety car in F1. In this case Mr. Reuss was being a Billy Badass.

The biggest crime in this whole debacle is surely the chrome wheels. Damnit GM, cut it out.

Also the race was pretty good for a street circuit!

I laughed to see the GM exec get out of the car after binning it! Decent race though, hated to see Rossi blow it at the end. Giving up the lead seems like it would have been much better than finishing 13th....

At the time, they said he would have been doing 70mph, I think that's more than the F1 SC?

I think the IndyCar pace car would be going considerably slower than the F1 SC.

Aside from the pace car incident, I thought that was an excellent race.
Passing wasn't exactly at a premium but there were some great moves and mostly well earned.
RHR looked like a man possessed through most of the weekend. Thankfully a comparative lack of cautions helped the strategies play out.

He (Reuss) did not accept responsibility for the crash, instead:

"It is unfortunate that this incident happened. Many factors contributed, including weather and track conditions. The carís safety systems performed as expected."

What?

Think GM needs to rethink their internal driver ratings, apparently he holds GM's highest driver classification. Oh and an FIA Class C license but hey making that Vroom-Vroom noise is fun.

Zoom-Zoom might have made the corner but caught fire before finishing (Not a yule log but closest thing to a Mazda turbo fire I could find)
