Perfect run! Scott Dixon and his No. 9 Honda IndyCar was won the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix on Belle Isle. For Dixon, it is his first victory of the 2018 season, and 41st of his IndyCar career. Dixon has 42nd major open-wheel wins and 99 career podiums. Dixon is now tied with Michael Andretti for third on the all-time win list.

Ryan Hunter-Reay and his No. 28 IndyCar Andretti Autosport Honda would finish second. It is his second podium of the year, and 37th of his IndyCar career. Overall, Hunter-Reay has 40 major open-wheel podium finishes.

Alexander Rossi and his No. 27 IndyCar Honda would pick up the final podium position. It is his fourth podium of the year, and 8th of his IndyCar career.

Marco Andretti and Takuma Sato would round out the top five finishers.


Marco Andretti would lead the field to green flag racing. Scott Dixon, Roberts Wickens, Alexander Rossi and Ryan Hunter-Reay would slot in behind.

By Lap 10, the order was Andretti, Dixon, Rossi, Takuma Sato, and Hunter-Reay. Hunter-Reay would pit to try to gain an advantage on clear track.

Thirteen laps later, Andretti would continue to lead followed by Dixon, Rossi, Graham Rahal, and Sato. Andretti would pit from the lead and take on the black sidewall Firestone tire. He would return to the track in fifth. Dixon would stop on the next lap and come out well ahead of Andretti.

But, Hunter-Reay's early pitstop strategy would put him ahead of both Dixon and Andretti. Once all of the initial pitstops had been completed the order was Hunter-Reay, Dixon, Rahal, Andretti, and Wickens.

On Lap 33, Hunter-Reay would pit from the lead, take on fuel and tires, and return in third. Dixon would take the lead followed by Rahal, Hunter-Reay, Andretti and Rossi.

Dixon would pit on Lap 45, 6.9 seconds later he would depart. Rahal would also stop, but the team would execute a 10.5 second stop. Hunter-Reay would then pit two laps later and return to the primary pit sequence.

Rahal would smash into the wall between Turns 13 and Turn 14 after hitting the inside curbing. The result would be a full course caution. The order behind the pace car would be Dixon, Hunter-Reay, Andretti, Rossi, and Jones.

The competitors would return to green flag racing with 17 laps to go. Two laps later, Santino Ferrucci - in his first IndyCar race - would get sideways after being punted by Charlie Kimball. He would slide down the track in his No. 19 Honda and spear the tire barriers. He would slowly get out of his car and walk away. The yellow flags would fly again.

Dixon would lead the field back to green flag racing with 10 to go. Hunter-Reay, Andretti, Rossi and Sato would follow.

Dixon would perfectly execute his race until the end. Congratulations to Scott Dixon and Chip Ganassi Racing!

Next up, The second race of the weekend will be held on Sunday.
