    All came down to strategy. First it was Munoz, then Newgarden took the lead, then back to Munoz. With 2 laps to go, Munoz pits. Only took 3.9 seconds. Was too long though. Rookie Rossi had the gas, and outlasted everyone. Made it 36 laps without refueling. Awesome. Came down to intelligent pit maneuvering and excellent strategy.

    Rossi barely, barely made it with enough fuel to pass the finish line.

    That was very surprising. I was almost certain that Montoya would get it this year.
