Penske kind of weekend. Josef Newgarden and his No. 2 Hitachi / Verizon Penske Chevrolet has won the 2019 St. Petersburg Grand Prix. For Newgarden, it is his first victory of the season, and 11th of his IndyCar career. It is also his 23rd career IndyCar podium.

Scott Dixon and his No. 9 PNC Bank Ganassi Honda would finish second, and claim his 106th major open-wheel series podium.

Polesitter Will Power and his No. 12 Verizon Chevrolet Penske led early, but would finish with 71st major open-wheel podium.

Felix Rosenqvist and his Ganassi prepared IndyCar led laps, but would finish fourth. Alexander Rossi and his No. 27 Andretti Autosport IndyCar would round out the top-five finishers.

 
Recap

The green flag would drop and the 2019 IndyCar season was underway on the streets of St. Petersburg, Florida. Will Power and his No. 12 Penske IndyCar would lead. Rookie Felix Rosenqvist (Formula E and sports car veteran), Josef Newgarden, Scott Dixon and Alexander Rossi would slot in behind. A clean start for a 24 car field.

On Lap 15 the first incident of the day would be Sebastien Bourdais and his No. 18 IndyCar Honda which had fire and smoke pouring from the right rear area. Power would make a pitstop from the lead, but race officials would hold the yellow flag. Power would return to the track in seventh, Rosenqvist would take the lead, but pit a lap later. The rest of the leaders would follow up with stops on the next lap. By Lap 19, Power was back in front.

The first yellow flag came on Lap 20 as Ryan Hunter-Reay's Honda powered IndyCar would spew clouds of smoke into the front stretch air.

On the restart, Rosenqvist would take a tire smoking lead entering Turn One as Will Power was moved back to second place.

On Lap 26, Ed Jones and his No. 20 Chevrolet would slam into the Turn 9 barrier. Matheus Leist and his No. 4 Chevrolet would exit the turn full speed and smack his left rear on Jones' stricken car. Both drivers day would end, and the second yellow of the race would fly.

Rosenqvist would lead the field back to green on Lap 35. Power, Newgarden, Dixon would follow until Lap 51. Power would be the first of the leaders to make a pitstop. Rosenqvist would follow suit on the next lap. Dixon would wait three more laps, and Newgarden would wait four.

After all of the stops, Newgarden would lead followed by Marco Andretti (alternate pit strategy), Dixon, Power, and Rosenqvist.

In an effort to avoid the late caution, the leaders would all make their last pitstops of the Grand Prix on Laps 79 through 82. Newgarden would lead followed by Dixon, Power, Rosenqvist, and Rossi.
