HUNTER-REAY TAKES WIN AT MILWAUKEE INDYFEST PRESENTED BY XYQ

WEST ALLIS, Wis. - Ryan Hunter-Reay passed Helio Castroneves for the lead with 84 laps to go and held on to win the Milwaukee IndyFest at the famed Milwaukee Mile.

Hunter-Reay, who started second, led Tony Kanaan across the start-finish line by 5.1029 seconds.

James Hinchcliffe was third and Oriol Servia jumped from the 20th starting position to finish fourth. E.J. Viso, who led his first laps since June 2011 at Texas, finished fifth (his first top five since Iowa in 2010).

After the race, INDYCAR officials acknowledged an error led to a drive through penalty against Scott Dixon, who had moved from 21st position into the top-10 before the call.

"Due to a glitch in technology, there was a discrepancy between the official race clock and the clock on the replay machine," INDYCAR President of Competition and IZOD IndyCar Series race director Beaux Barfield said. "Therefore the review of the jumped start was one lap off, leading Race Control to make the call on the wrong lap. We have informed the Ganassi team of this error and Race Control is taking every step necessary to address it going forward. The Race Control team will be meeting first thing Monday morning to review the issue and explore remedies in advance of the race at Iowa."

Will Power, who finished 12th, retained the IZOD IndyCar Series championship lead. Hinchcliffe moved into second (31 points back). Chevrolet-powered cars swept the podium.
