Well shoot. That caution may have done in Dixie and Seabass

That was unfortunate for Bourdais, being caught out by the Yellow and it was due to his team mate De Melo.

Rossi is running away with it at the moment but let's see how pit strategies work out.
I started watching 30 minutes in to avoid most of the commercials. I'm caught up now.

Congrats to Rossi. That was a very solid drive. Congrats to Ed Jones on his first IndyCar podium. Three cars in the top 6 for Andretti Autosport.

Rossi totally owned the race.

I still can't get over the fact that drivers like Binner and ZCD were selected over Urrutia.

The top 3 drivers in the standings are American.

Result:

Honda definitely had the edge over Chevrolet all weekend, resulting in the win for Rossi and 5 cars in the top 6. Despite RH-R's woes, that was a good result for Andretti Autosport/Herta, with three cars in the top 6. The 6th place must be Marco Andretti's best finish for a while.

2 Will Power, Team Penske. Dallara/Chevrolet. 85. 1.2413s

5 Graham Rahal, Rahal Letterman Lanigan. Dallara/Honda. 85. 10.7466s
6 Marco Andretti, Andretti Herta. Dallara/Honda. 85. 11.5513s
7 Josef Newgarden, Team Penske. Dallara/Chevrolet. 85. 12.2175s
8 Tony Kanaan, AJ Foyt Enterprises. Dallara/Chevrolet. 85. 16.1048s
9 James Hinchcliffe, Schmidt Peterson Motorsports. Dallara/Honda. 85. 16.4757s

Quite an entertaining race, Rossi did a Dixon at Watkins Glen a couple of years ago and basically ran away and hid. When Power, Bourdais and Dixon weren't able to catch him for most of the race you know it was a compelling performance. The team were smart as well to take a no risk strategy and use his performance instead.

The start definitely needs to be sorted, when only the front 8 cars or so are lined up and the rest of the field is trailing it's way around the last 2 bends it leads to a very strung out start.

Glad Jones was able to redress the Phoenix crash with a podium, Veach did very well too.
Anyone else notice a very racy Kanaan as well?
Good to see Carlin get a top 10, hopefully it's a step forward to more regular competitive performances.

Tony has been quite strong all year, at least compared to foyts performance over the last 5 6 years or so. It's good to see, I wonder how much tk's input has done for the team or if they're just getting stronger in general. Given leists performance I tend to think it's the former. He's been running around in standard foyt fashion.
