Rinus VeeKay seized command of the second half of the Indy GMR Grand Prix at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course Saturday, leading the results as the latest first-time winner in the NTT IndyCar Series to shake up the points standings.

The Dutchman took the top step of an international podium that also featured Frenchman Romain Grosjean in second and Spaniard Alex Palou in third.

VeeKay, 20, became the fifth winner in five races this season after Palou (Barber Motorsports Park), Colton Herta (Grand Prix of St. Petersburg), Scott Dixon (Texas Motor Speedway) and Pato O’Ward (Texas).

VeeKay, Palou and O’Ward are all first-time IndyCar winners. Along with Herta, they’ve given IndyCar four winners 24 and younger in the first five races this season.
