Barber Indy Lights: Spencer Pigot takes dominant first win

Juncos driver Pigot started from pole and held command all the way, eventually crossing the line almost seven seconds clear of second-placed Jack Harvey.

"I made a good jump at the start and I knew Jack wasn't beside me so I could take a good line into Turn 1," Pigot said.

"It's a very difficult place to pass anyway, but especially when you're close to each other in speed.

"I knew that first lap would be really important to get out in front and stay in front.

"I worked at hitting my marks, using up all the road and not looking in my mirrors too much."

RC Enerson completed a Schmidt two-three and earned his first Lights podium, while championship leader Jones was left to settle for fourth place ahead of Carlin team-mate Max Chilton.

A mostly processional race was enlivened by a first-corner tangle between Scott Anderson and Scott Rayhall, who is making his series debut this weekend with 8Star.

Both drivers were able to continue, but only after falling off the lead lap while undergoing repairs in the pits.
