Event Statistics

The Detroit Grand Prix (currently branded as the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear Corporation for sponsorship reasons) is an IndyCar Series race weekend held on a temporary circuit at Belle Isle in Detroit, Michigan. The race has been held from 1989 to 2001, 2007 to 2008, and since 2012. The current format of the event is a unique "doubleheader" weekend, which includes two full, points-paying races, one each on Saturday and Sunday. In addition, since 2012, the event has been scheduled for the weekend immediately following the Indianapolis 500.

At 37, seemingly very much in the marrow of his highly successful Indy car career, but as a generally understated kind of guy, Scott Dixon has never had much need to discuss his ever-gilded legacy as he’s constructing it. There will be time for that, one day, he insists.
Press him further and he’ll smile or purse his lips in a contemplative way and offer, “I dunno, man” as a final polite prompt for an off-ramp from the line of questioning. One day, likely multiple seasons from now, the Chip Ganassi Racing driver should have much to say.
At least he’ll have plenty of material, no matter what happens after his win Saturday in Race 1 of the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear. It wasn’t merely the first win of the Verizon IndyCar Series season for Dixon, perpetuating a streak in which he has now claimed victory in 14 consecutive years. With his 42nd all-time win, the four-time series champion tied Michael Andretti for third on the all-time wins list. Above him are A.J. Foyt with 67 and Mario Andretti with 52.
Dixon, who built leads as large as 15 seconds, fended off a challenge from Hunter-Reay on a Lap 53 restart following Rahal’s crash and another restart with 10 laps left to secure the win. The final caution was caused when Charlie Kimball punted rookie Santino Ferrucci into the Turn 7 tire barrier. Kimball was later penalized for avoidable contact.
