Chevrolet won the Manufacturer’s Championship. By the last few laps of the race, there were no more eligible Honda drivers to score manufacturer points.

Team Owners ROGER PENSKE and CHIP GANASSI weren’t the only ones on the edge of their seats, figuratively. The complexion of the race changed lap by lap, and became quite the race of attrition.

Second through fourth were last year’s winner, ED CARPENTER/No.20 Ed Carpenter Racing, TONY KANAAN/No.11 KVSH Racing Chevrolet and JAMES HINCHCLIFFE/No.27 Andretti Autosport Chevrolet.
