The race was a great battle between Ed Carpenter and Will Power following the final round of service stops in the Firestone 600.
Unfortunately, Power of Team Penske was penalised for a speeding violation with 35 laps left.
After gaining a 12-second lead over Juan Pablo Montoya on lap 242, Carpenter held on following a restart on lap 246 to win by 0.5247 of a second over Power.
Montoya, Power’s teammate, finished a season-high third in the No. 2 car and Simon Pagenaud was fourth in the No. 77 dallara.
Reigning Verizon IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon placed fifth in the No. 9 Ganassi car, followed by teammate Tony Kanaan.
For Carpenter, it was his third Verizon IndyCar Series victory (his first since the 2012 season finale at Auto Club Speedway) and the second for Ed Carpenter Racing this season.
