Rice steals Michigan prize as pit crews suffer.

Kanaan moved alongside as they took the white flag, but Rice had the measure of him and held on to snatch a win that had looked to be in his rival's pocket all day. Behind these two Wheldon emerged from the pack to take third, Hornish fourth and Meira recovering to fifth.

“I said yesterday we don't need to show anything until the last 20 laps,” grinned Rice in victory lane. “We knew what we had to do when we had to do it.” He had reason to be very happy, while Kanaan, who thought he might have run over a piece of front wing from the Meira/Castroneves clash on the last lap, has reason to be concerned. Rice has now matched him with three wins, and the points gap that so recently looked so dominant is shrinking fast. Next stop, Kentucky in two weeks time. It'll be a thriller…
