Leal beat Logano to victory on a damp but drying track in the daylight race. With the grid set by practice times reversed, both benefitted from mechanical problems that meant they had no pre-race running. Montoya came from last to beat Munoz to second.

In the floodlit night race, Castroneves defeated Logano in a big battle for the win, with Indy Lights man Gabby Chaves completing the podium.
