Barber - Race results

Ryan Hunter-Reay stormed to victory in the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama after overcoming a clever pit strategy from Penske's Will Power and Helio Castroneves.
Ryan Hunter-Reay got his championship defence back on track in the second race of the 2013 IZOD IndyCar Series on Sunday afternoon at Barber Motorsports Park.

Hunter-Reay started the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama from pole position, but lost the lead to Will Power on lap 26 as the Penske team gambled on a two-stop pit strategy. Hunter-Reay also had to overcome a strong showing from Power's team mate Helio Castroneves, a career best outing for Charlie Kimball, and a storming run at the end of the race from Kimball's Ganassi colleague Scott Dixon.

Hunter-Reay's margin of victory over Dixon at the line was just 0.6363s, which gave Andretti Autosport their second victory of the season in the two races of 2013 so far. However James Hinchcliffe - Hunter-Reay's team mate, and the winner at St Petersburg - suffered a miserable day after the #27 lost power on lap 3 forcing the Canadian to watch the rest of the race from the sidelines.
