Detroit: Race results (1)

1 June 2013

Mike Conway took the lead right at the start of the first race of the Chevrolet Indy Dual in Detroit presented by Quicken Loans, and then proved impossible to dislodge from the front except for brief stints around pit stops as he delivered a dominant win for Dale Coyne Racing.

Ryan Hunter-Reay came closest to stopping the 'super-sub' from pulling off a stunning return to IZOD IndyCar Series but in the end his harder prime tyres wouldn't last long enough for him to hunt down the leader in the closing laps. He finished ahead of Conway's team mate and compatriot Justin Wilson, who finished a strong third place despite having been unhappy with his brake balance coming into the event.

Scott Dixon pulled off an impressive recovery after being rear-ended by AJ Allmendinger on the opening lap and losing his rear wing. After repairs he was able to march back up to fourth place ahead of Helio Catroneves and Dario Franchitti.
