Graham Rahal takes pole, track record at Detroit Grand Prix

Helio Castroneves, who finished seventh in the No. 3 Hitachi Team Penske Chevrolet, is second with 273 points and Indianapolis 500 victor Takuma Sato, who finished eighth today in the No. 26 Andretti Autosport Honda, is third in points with 258.

Leading 55 of 70 laps, Rahal dominated the race in the No. 15 Rahal Letterman Lanigan Honda.

Rahal logged a 114.374mph lap in 1:13.9681 to earn the P1 Award and better Simon Pagenaud's mark from past year by 0.0698 seconds.

The Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix turned out to be a Honda rout as Dixon was second in Ganassi's Honda.

Summerhays takes advantage of Dufner collapse at Memorial
That gave him 10 under and put him in the final group with Summerhays as he tries to end three years and 82 starts without a win. Summerhays carded 68 for 13-under 203, while Matt Kuchar shot 67 to move into second place on 10-under.

IndyCar will conclude its only doubleheader of the season Sunday.

Reigning champion Simon Pagenaud will line-up only P7 for Race 1, after a frustrating qualifying session for the Penske racer. Charlie Kimball couldn't avoid a slowing Conor Daly on the backstretch, and the contact that followed broke a piece of Kimball's auto.

After his news conference in Detroit, he walked with a limp and kept weight off his sore left foot as he went down stairs.

Rahal's wife, Courtney Force, escaped without injury in a qualifying run Friday in Epping, N.H. Her vehicle, owned by her father, John Force, had a fuel line burst to create the spectacular visual.

Trump administration approves tougher visa vetting, including social media checks
Now it appears that the Trump Administration wants a further head start on perusing the digital lives of those entering the U.S. A new visa application implemented by the State Department works to implement President Trump's goal of "extreme vetting".

"It's a bomb waiting to go off and unfortunately, it did", Rahal said.

Scott Dixon finished second, taking the series points lead by two over Helio Castroneves, who finished seventh. "It's upsetting because it's not many times you have a phenomenal auto".

BOUNCING BACK: Hinchcliffe spun out on the opening lap and was fortunate his fellow drivers avoided hitting him, leaving his auto unscathed.

"I've been around the series long enough to know turn one doesn't have to run your day", he said. The four-time IndyCar champ started sixth and parlayed his two-stop strategy and pace to take over the point lead heading into Sunday afternoon's second race. Following that race, the series will shift to Texas Motor Speedway for a race under the lights on June 10.
