Milwaukee IndyFest (West Allis, Wisconsin): Race results

Ryan Hunter-Reay won his second consecutive Milwaukee IndyFest at the Milwaukee Mile, after overcoming early strong runs from Marco Andretti and Takuma Sato.
Ryan Hunter-Reay won his second race of the 2013 IZOD IndyCar Series season, together with what was his second consecutive Milwaukee IndyFest event on Saturday afternoon at the Milwaukee Mile.

Hunter-Reay made a play for the lead right at the start only to be thwarted by his team mate, polesitter Marco Andretti. Andretti was ultimately sidelined by electrical problems mid way through the race, while a new threat to Hunter-Reay emerged with Takuma Sato taking a dominant hold on the middle stint of the event thanks to an off-sequence pit strategy.

Once the end was in sight, however, Hunter-Reay showed he had more than enough in reserve to surge into the lead ahead of the Penske duo of Helio Castroneves and Will Power. The pair between them prevented Hunter-Reay from being joined by his Andretti Autosports team mates EJ Viso and James Hinchcliffe on the podium on what had been a strong day for the squad, Marco's electrical issue notwithstanding.

An ill-timed final caution proved an insurmountable setback for Sato who ended up back in seventh place at the chequered flag sandwiched between the two Ganassis of Scott Dixon and Dario Franchitti, the last of the eight cars on the lead lap by the finish.
