SPEEDWAY, Ind. (21 Alive) - Simon Pagenaud and his crew guessed right, barely, on fuel and that gave them the first ever IndyCar Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the road course inside the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Saturday.

Pagenaud could not do a celebration burnout at the end because his car was out of fuel.

Ryan Hunter-Reay was second, and Helio Castroneves third, and both chose to make late pit stops for splashes of fuel.

The race had a rough start when polesitter Sebastian Saavedra stalled his car at the start that caused a big four car wreck from which debris struck and slightly injured honorary starter and Indianapolis mayor Greg Ballard.
