Helio Castroneves, who started fifth in the Chevrolet-powered No. 3 Shell V-Power/Pennzoil Ultra Team Penske car, led Target Chip Ganassi Racing's Scott Dixon across the finish line by 5.5292 seconds. Following the final round of pit stops, Castroneves overtook Dixon on the outside of Turn 1 for second place on Lap 72, and three laps later passed JR Hildebrand entering the sharp right-hand turn for the lead and kept Dixon at bay the remaining 25 laps.
"It's a terrific run," team owner Roger Penske said. "It's going to be a great season, and it's great to be back racing."
