BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Ryan Hunter-Reay coasted to his second straight victory at Barber Motorsports Park when the rain-shortened IndyCar race finished under caution.
A full-course caution came out for the final seven minutes of the timed race after rookie Mikhail Aleshin lost control and went off the track. That left Hunter-Reay unchallenged, with Andretti Autosport teammate Marco Andretti finishing second.
Scott Dixon was third, followed by Simon Pagenaud and pole-sitter Will Power, a two-time winner at Barber who was among the drivers dealing with a slippery track in spots.
"He was out there cutting the grass," Hunter-Reay said. "I had to take advantage of that. It was so easy to do that today. I almost lost this race three times."
RICHMOND, Va. - From perfect weather and a big crowd to a classic short-track finish and the fisticuffs afterward, NASCAR hardly could have asked for more from its first visit to Richmond International Raceway on Saturday.
Joey Logano emerged as the big winner by deftly taking advantage of a three-way duel of former champions Jeff Gordon, Matt Kenseth and Brad Keselowski, sneaking by them.
When it was over, what happened in the three-way battle left Keselowski talking as if he had moved Kenseth to the top of his list, and Marcos Ambrose didn't even bother making a list. He responded instead to a shove from Casey Mears with a punch in the face that was captured on video.
