Graham Rahal wins 1st of 2 Detroit Grand Prix IndyCar races

Graham Rahal will start Race 1 of the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix from pole position around the Raceway at Belle Isle Park, after a confusing conclusion to the qualifying session.

Rahal led for 55 of the 70 laps in Detroit to earn the fifth win of his 11-year IndyCar career and his first since last August in Texas.

Rahal, driving the No. 15 SoldierStrong / TurnsforTroops.com Honda for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing, scorched around the 14-turn, 2.35-mile circuit in 1 minute, 13.9681 seconds (114.374 mph).

Dixon persevered to finish second despite a painful left ankle, the result of his spectacular crash during the May 28 running of the Indianapolis 500.

Dixon, the Indianapolis 500 pole victor, didn't miss a beat despite a small fracture in his foot.
