- Graham Rahal completed a sweep of IndyCar's Detroit double-header with another dominant performance. Rahal was leading when a breakdown for Spencer Pigot spewed oil and prompted organisers to red-flag the race. It resumed with three laps to go and Rahal survived the dash to the finish, easily holding off Penske driver Josef Newgarden to win by 1.1772sec on the 2.35-mile (3.78 Km) temporary street circuit on Belle Isle. Rahal, whose win on Saturday for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing came 25 years after his father Bobby Rahal won in Detroit in 1992, became the first driver to sweep an IndyCar double-header since Kiwi Scott Dixon won both races in Toronto in 2013.
