Newgarden wins second race under caution

Reigning IndyCar champion Josef Newgarden recorded his second victory of season for Team Penske under caution in the second race of the double-header at Gateway.

Newgarden gained the lead from team-mate Will Power through the third and final pitstop cycle on lap 152 after the Australian was briefly held up by backmarker Ed Carpenter on his in-lap.

Double series champion Newgarden then held a four-tenths of a second buffer to the chasing O’Ward, which the Mexican rookie was unable to close before polesitter Takuma Sato hit the Turn 2 wall on lap 197 of 200 to bring out the yellow flags.
