"A little bit of a disappointment, I think we had a better car than fifth, but you've got to take what you can sometimes," admitted Newgarden of his last minute slide down the running order. "I thought we had a really strong race. Good solid points, top five is really good going into Indy, especially considering where we started."
EJ Viso, Dario Franchitti, Simona de Silvestro, Simon Pagenaud and Charlie Kimball rounded out the top ten, with Hunter-Reay unable to stop his slide out of the top ten and having to settle for 11th place by the chequered flag while his two team mates clinched podium positions. It certainly means that the championship is wide open heading to Indianapolis next week with everything to play for by all concerned.
