Bourdais serving as mentor during Honda Indy Toronto, months after crash

Dixon heads to Toronto today, a place where he won a pair of dual races in 2013.

Newgarden, the 26-year-old from Nashville, won his second Honda Indy Toronto on Sunday, leading the final 58 of 85 laps.

"I love beating Hinch in Canada", Newgarden said. "I love Hinch, he's a great representative, but this is so good".

As Tony Kanaan exited the pits on lap 23, he locked up the brakes heading into bumpy Turn 1 and ran into the tire barrier - at the same moment Newgarden came in to pit.

"That is twice I have had good calls and got into the pits at the right time", Newgarden said.

"We were up there but I'll always take a bit of luck, I think we all would", he said.

"I'll take a lucky yellow any day of the week".

It was that simple, but I am grateful to the Academy for including people from diverse backgrounds around the world. On co-producing an American TV show with Madhuri Dixit, Pee Cee said, "I am developing a lot of things".

He previously took first back at the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama in April, the second time he has taken first place at Barber Motorsports Park (with the other victory coming in 2015) and the earliest into any season in which he has claimed a win.

Hinchcliffe's result was his third podium finish on a road course this season. With the pit lane being moved, and a tightening to Turns 9, 10 and 11 to accomodate Hotel X Toronto, drivers a year ago were anxious about running out of room in some sections.

"The last shootout in Q2 is always exciting", said Hinchcliffe, the victor this year at Long Beach. He dropped nearly a lap down and spent the race trying to make up the gap.

There have been nine different winners in the 11 previous Verizon IndyCar races held this season...19 of the 21 drivers entered at Toronto have raced in Indy cars here before... His auto caught fire, but the driver escaped without injury.

"I was concerned about that and how it would throw a wrench into the works", Newgarden said. "It's going to be hard beating all of those guys, but I will tell you what, when you have got Chevy power, you have Chevy reliability and Chevy fuel mileage - you feel pretty good about things".

A trio of Hondas followed the Penske duo, with Andretti Autosport's Ryan Hunter-Reay third, Rahal Letterman Lanigan's Graham Rahal fourth, and Chip Ganassi Racing's Scott Dixon in fifth. The steering on Power's auto was broken, meaning he had to be pushed into pit lane. "We want to do it right but it's not something I am looking at in anticipation of a career switch".

Newgarden jumped into fourth in the driver standings by picking up 53 points with his victory. While Honda has won all four street circuits this season (Sebastien Bourdais' win at St. Petersburg; Hinchcliffe's victory at Long Beach; and Rahal's sweep of the Detroit doubleheader), Penske put two of its Chevrolet-powered cars on the podium and all four in the top 10 at the most recent street circuit race, the second dual in Detroit.
