Allmendinger recovered from an early race pit road accident that sent him back in the pack to lead a race-high 42 of the final 62 laps.

On a resumption on Lap 45, Allmendinger retook the lead for the last time and went on to defeat Cup Series regular Alex Bowman by a gap of 2.084 seconds.

This is Allmendinger’s third victory of the year, all of which have been on road courses (his other wins were at Circuit of the Americas and Portland). Additionally, it marks his 13th triumph overall.

“God, I love this place. Indy, baby! Let’s go,” Allmendinger said. “I can’t thank everybody at Kaulig Racing, all the men and women, enough. We struggled, we worked hard to get a little bit better. I knew Bowman was really good on the long runs so I tried to gap him as much as I could. God, I love Indy.

“We win and lose as a team but I knew the way our car was set up, it was not very good in traffic. We had a little bit of a brake issue, too. The guys recovered really well. I was just frustrated because we gave up stage points a little bit there as well.

“But at this point, points don’t mean a damn thing. We’re kissing the bricks!”

Chase Briscoe completed the top-five, and Justin Allgaier finished third after a tense duel with Ross Chastain on the closing laps.

Riley Herbst, Sam Mayer, Ty Gibbs, Austin Hill, and Noah Gragson made up the remaining five spots in the top 10.
