After years of chasing a win on an oval track, Simon Pagenaud finally makes it his day. Followed across the line by his teammate Will Power. Third went to Ed Carpenter Racing's J. R. Hildebrand. In this race I was watching my usual favorites for Oval racing Tony Kanaan who came in 6th, Ed Carpenter who was 7th, Takumo Sato who went out on an accident on lap 135 and Sebastian Bourdais who went out in a five-car pile up in the first lap.

My very favorite team for Oval's is Ed Carpenter Racing, who have flown under different names over the last few years, finished in the places mentioned, 3rd and 7th.
