The fastest guys in Verizon IndyCar qualifying this season were the class of the field today at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the fastest guy won the IndyCar Grand Prix. The Honda engine in his Dale Coyne Racing-prepared Dallara failed at the end of his third circuit. He did so in 2015 and Simon Pagenaud followed suit past year.
"I think today we got the most out of the auto", Dixon said.
Bourdais opened the season with a win at St. Petersburg.
Today's race ran caution-free, the first in IndyCar since Long Beach 2016, and was nearly entirely dictated by pit strategy.
But he just wishes he fully understood what happened on pit road.

After winning the 1912 Sarthe Cup at Le Mans, Jules Goux traveled to the United States to become the first Frenchman and first European to conquer the prestigious American race, leading 138 of the 200 laps.
Teammate Ed Jones was barely better, running 19th after needing to avoid spinning Tony Kanaan on the first lap and losing more spots after a botched pit stop.
"It's amusing, momentum, once your whole team and crew believes that you have a shot at winning races - which we have had all year - but when you execute it, it definitely gives them confidence".

"We know them in Indy for the oval, but a lot of people just know what they do on the road course and for us to have an opportunity to see them sort of up close and personal here is really great", Boles said. In the first stint I pushed way to hard early.
"I was very concious of the gap that Dixon was closing", Power said of the later stages of the race. It's about braking and traction out of the corners, which suits me really well. "I mean, yeah, all the sessions have been 40 - yeah, it's good to have a night to think about it before qualifying, but definitely shortens the weekend up".
