RacerViews photographer, Jeff Picoult was at Detroit to for all the Indycar action. He has delivered us this great gallery from the home of automobiles in the States.  It was great to see Detroit back on the Indycar schedule.

A brief recap of the race

Race winner Scott Dixon, who held on to finish 1.9628 seconds ahead of Target Chip Ganassi Racing teammate Dario Franchitti, also was joined on the stage by Simon Pagenaud as Honda swept the top three in Chevy’s home race.

Dixon, the pole sitter, led all 60 laps in the race shortened from 90 laps because of a two-hour red flag for crews to repair three sections of patched asphalt on the 14-turn course. Dixon earned his 28th Indy car victory, passing Johnny Rutherford for 11th on the all-time list. Rick Mears (29) is next up.
