Texas: Race results

10 June 2012

Justin Wilson is finally an oval winner in the IZOD IndyCar Series, after driving a superb race in the tricky night time conditions at Texas Motor Speedway to clinch victory in the Firestone 550 on Saturday night.

Wilson was in strong contention for most of the night, even before a late spin by longtime race leader Scott Dixon, a penalty for Will Power and a late error by Graham Rahal opened the gates to victory lane for him.
