Start:  4th Finish: 3rd Status: Running Laps Completed:  82/82 Laps Led:  0 Points Position: 1st

Recap: Juan Pablo Montoya maintained his lead in the Verizon IndyCar Series drivers’ standings with his third podium finish in five races this season. It also was his 21st podium in 64 career series races. He narrowly escaped damage to the No. 2 Verizon Chevy early in the race after an incident involving Team Penske teammate Helio Castroneves on the opening lap. On lap 39, he pitted for alternate “red” Firestone tires, and began to work his way back through the field. In just nine laps he moved into third place. He valiantly tried to track down second-place Graham Rahal for the remainder of the race, but ultimately ran out of laps. Montoya is now five points ahead of race winner Will Power in the standings and 10 points ahead of Castroneves, giving Team Penske the top three spots in the series standings.
