Scott Dixon has won the second race of the Detroit double-header, redeeming his weekend after crashing out of Saturday's race.
Some nicely timed yellow flags played into Dixon's hands, as well for Marcus Ericsson, who picked up his maiden IndyCar podium.
Ericsson was running in second place towards the end of the race, and was closing in on Dixon before a yellow flag was deployed when James Hinchcliffe retired with no power.
Dixon held off Ericsson at the restart, while Ericsson focused on keeping Will Power behind him. They had to contend another restart as Felix Rosenqvist, Dixon's teammate, crashed out with six laps to go.
Power managed to secure third despite having troubles during the race, which saw him stop on the circuit with an engine issue early on. However, he was able to fight his way back up the owner, gaining positions through his strategy.
Championship leader Josef Newgarden failed to see the chequered flag, as he came together with Hinchcliffe and Alexander Rossi during the race.
Hinchcliffe exited the pits in what was a fight for net second place, and as Newgarden attacked the Canadian, he slid into the wall while Rossi too also half spun, pitching Hinchcliffe into Newgarden.
Rossi was able to immediately rejoin the action and went on to finish fifth in the race, behind teammate Ryan Hunter-Reay.
It was a strong day for Andretti Autosport as behind Rossi, Andretti and Zach Veach crossed the line in sixth and eighth respectively, with Graham Rahal sandwiched between both.
The two Dale Coyne cars of Sebastien Bourdais and Santino Ferrucci ended up in ninth and tenth. Bourdais' result comes despite a hefty collision he had during the race with Spencer Pigot.
Bourdais pulled out to overtake Pigot, but at the same time, Pigot moved the same way to head for the pit lane entry. The resulting clash saw Bourdais lose his front wing while Pigot was sent into the barriers.
Pigot wasn't the first retirement of the race, as Tony Kanaan was out at the first corner. At the back of the pack on the opening lap, the drivers bunched up which saw contact between multiple races.
Kanaan, Simon Pagenaud and Patricio O'Ward came off worst, but the latter mentioned duo were eventually able to rejoin the race.
