Hunter-Reay overpowers Penske to win in Alabama

"Today was a good day," said the Brazilian star. "That was a shame on the start, but when we changed to Plan B we just decided to go for it. It paid off and it wasn't a win but for us for the championship, it is good and right now we just have to keep going. We need to keep going and you have to put yourself out there that's great and that is what we just did today."

Castroneves now leads the IndyCar Series championship standings by nine points over Scott Dixon, with Ryan Hunter-Reay a further four points back.
