Toronto: Race results (2)

Scott Dixon dominated the second race of the Honda Indy Toronto double-header, leading from pole position and never under serious threat from race runner-up Helio Castroneves.
Scott Dixon completed a sweep of the Honda Indy Toronto double-header weekend, leading Helio Castroneves from the first corner all the way to the chequered flag in race 2 on Sunday to add to his success 24 hours previously.

Sebastien Bourdais managed to pass Will Power for third place at the final restart, and Power had then been taken out by Ryan Hunter-Reay who tried and failed a similar outside line pass on the #12 only to end up in contact that put both cars out of the race and which also collected the hapless Takuma Sato.

Dario Franchitti suffered a first lap incident which damaged his front wing on the back of Castroneves' car through turn 1, forcing him to make a premature pit stop. However a canny race strategy, a little luck with late cautions and a determined drive from Franchitti enabled him to finish in fourth place ahead of EJ Viso and Charlie Kimball when the race ended under caution.

Full race 2 report to follow.
