Hunter-Reay wins GP of Alabama

auto racing • Ryan Hunter-Reay coasted to his second straight victory at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Ala., when the rain-shortened IndyCar race finished under caution.

A full-course caution came out for the final seven minutes of the timed race after rookie Mikhail Aleshin lost control and went off the track. That left Hunter-Reay unchallenged, with Andretti Autosport teammate Marco Andretti finishing second. Scott Dixon was third, followed by Simon Pagenaud and pole-sitter Will Power.

The race started after a 2-hour, 26-minute delay for heavy rain and lightning. It was run under a 1-hour, 40-minute time limit.
