Milwaukee IndyFest (West Allis, Wisconsin): Hunter-Reay wins the extra Mile

"It was a very difficult race for us," admitted Kanaan. " We had to battle all day long, but just didn't have the pace. We finished in the top-ten so I will take those points. Now we move on to Iowa where hopefully we can have a better finish."

There had been no such problems or glitches for Hunter-Reay, however, who exited Milwaukee celebrating not only his ninth win in 99 IndyCar starts, but his first Father's Day as a father since the birth of his son Ryden in January with wife Beccy. All in all, things are looking pretty good in the life of the reigning champion, at the midpoint of the 2013 season as he sets his sights ever more firmly on back-to-back championships.

Full race results and championship standings are available, along with the post-race Q&A interview with the race winner.
