- France's Sebastien Bourdais won the second race of a weekend Detroit IndyCar doubleheader, conserving fuel late on to hold off Japan's Takuma Sato by 1.8sec after 68 laps of the 14-turn street circuit. "It was just about as nerve-racking as it gets," said Bourdais, who became the seventh different winner in eight races this season. "When we elected to stay out (and not pit to refuel) I was like, 'Oh man, it's all or nothing'. All I could hope for was one yellow (flag) after another. It was the right call. The boys worked really hard and we were on the pace. We passed a bunch of cars and made the moves when it mattered." Graham Rahal finished third.
