After a fast lap by Robert Wickens in the Arrow-modified hand-controlled Acura NSX , and Helio Castroneves then leading the pack in the IndyCar two-seater, Simon Pagenaud ’s Team Penske-Chevrolet and Scott Dixon ’s Chip Ganassi Racing-Honda led the field to the green flag. The polesitter just about held off the five-time champion, but Dixon then had to fend off an outside attack from Alexander Rossi into Turn 3. The Andretti Autosport driver had already demoted the other Ganassi car of Felix Rosenqvist , while Ed Jones had moved his Ed Carpenter Racing-Chevy ahead of the second Penske of Josef Newgarden . Sebastien Bourdais (Dale Coyne Racing with Vasser-Sullivan) and Takuma Sato (Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing) ran seventh and eighth.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 Score Details DT Recommended Product “Microsoft's Surface Laptop 4 is easily the best in the line so far, thanks to huge advances in performance.” AMD chips widely available in configurations Thinnest 15-inch laptop Superb build quality Great typing experience Long-lasting battery life Older AMD chips hold back performance Thick bezels, poor webcam MSRP $1,800.00 Well, Microsoft did it.
