  • Indy 500: Sausalito's Hildebrand places 16th

Americans Josef Newgarden and Alexander Rossi rounded out the top-five at fourth and fifth respectively. Indy 500 victor Takuma Sato was also undone by strategy, finishing eighth, while recent Indy Lights champions Ed Jones and Spencer Pigot rounded out the top 10.

Rahal logged a 114.374mph lap in 1:13.9681 to earn the P1 Award and better Simon Pagenaud's mark from past year by 0.0698 seconds.

TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT: Rahal's wife, drag racer Courtney Force, had her auto engulfed in flames Friday night.

There hasn't been a repeat victor in the first seven races of the season.

Rahal ultimately crossed the line six seconds clear of the field to become IndyCar's seventh different victor in the opening seven races of the season, as well as coming good on his pre-race promise that he could dominate.

But most importantly, I am so happy to share being number one in the world with you. "And today, I lost at the French Open ". Kvitova made a successful, impressive return to tennis Sunday after a harrowing home invasion stabbing in December.

Dixon takes a two-point lead in the championship standings over rival Helio Castroneves, who finished seventh in the race. Dixon's vehicle broken up into pieces amid sparks and flames. As was the case in Hinchcliffe's situation, Kimball's spin came with only a bump of the wall.

Unlike the other road and street courses throughout the year, qualifying around the streets of Detroit is rather unique, with the field split into two segments and the overall fastest driver securing pole position, with that driver's group forming the grid in the odd-numbered positions. The Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing driver proved it today with a dominant victory in the first race of the Verizon IndyCar Series weekend doubleheader.

Hinchcliffe started fifth, spun on his own on the first lap as the cars funneled through Turn 2 but drove well and made his three-stop pit strategy hold up. The pole is his first since 2009 and the team's first since 2007. Sunday's IndyCar schedule will follow a similar path here at the Belle Isle circuit.

Qualifying for Race 2 at Belle Isle starts at 10:45 a.m. ET Sunday and streams live on RaceControl.IndyCar.com.
