TORONTO (AP) — Sebastien Bourdais dominated from the pole at Toronto in the first IndyCar Series race of a Sunday doubleheader, cruising to his first open wheel victory since 2007.
The race was shortened to 65 laps after rain wiped out Saturday's race. Another 65-lap race is to be run in the afternoon at Exhibition Place.
Bourdais is in his first season with KVSH Racing and this is his first podium finish of the year. He finished second and third on this track in two races last year. Bourdais won his first pole since 2007 and now has his first victory since the 2007 Champ Car season finale in Mexico City.
He has 32 career open wheel wins and this is his first in 53 races under the IndyCar banner.
