Rahal wins Detroit IndyCar opening race

PLAYING HURT: Dixon moved into the points lead, quite a feat less than a week after getting knocked out of the Indianapolis 500 in a terrifying crash in which his vehicle sailed through the air and landed cockpit-first atop the inside safety fence.

Despite dealing with an ankle injury after his wild crash in the Indianapolis 500, Scott Dixon battled past the pain barrier to take second place, moving into the lead of the drivers' championship in the process. I think I was favoring a lot of things, but just so proud of the whole Camping World crew. "It's upsetting because it's not many times you have a phenomenal auto". The vehicle was fast. Today was great for points.

"Tires are the name of the game here", Hinchcliffe said. The rescue crew got the auto righted so quickly he didn't lose a lap to the leaders. "To be able to get off the (Firestone alternate) reds after the spin in the first turn there played to our advantage". It put us up where we belonged and I think we showed that the No. 5 Arrow vehicle had a lot of pace.
