It says it all. Now James Hinchcliffe can now place his plaque after overtaking Helio Castroneves on lap 73 en-route to his maiden win for Andretti Autosport. Marco Andretti overcame KV Racing pressure to seal the podium after passing an improved Simona De Silvestro on the final lap. Simona's race ended at the line with Tony Kanaan 4th and Scott Dixon edging her for 5th.

The whole drama unfolded on lap 74 with Sebastian Saavedra crashing the turn 11 barrier after wing damage. 2 laps later during the caution, JR Hildebrand ran over into Will Power's car damaging the rear and mirror causing his tire to shred.

Ryan Hunter-Reay's coming into the race as the defending series champ went astray after having a stuck trottle issues. Takuma Sato was not a factor for the race after his front row start losing 6 spots.

We hope this 2013 would be a new era. And hats off to Simona after a great run. Same goes to Marco after spending some off-season time at Europe with a driver coach.
