Sunday’s race saw 68 lead changes, as no driver was able to establish a consistent lead. After a handful of drivers exchanged the lead over the later laps, a yellow flag came out with seven laps to go when Graham Rahal hit the wall coming around the turn.

With the restart, Ryan Hunter-Reay started in the lead, but Kanaan got the jump out to first in front of rookie Carlos Munoz. A caution flag came out as Dario Franchitti wrecked, which allowed Kanaan to get the win under caution.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Kanaan was given 14/1 odds to win this race entering the day, which means a $100 wager on Kanaan will pay out an additional $1,400.

Kanaan had come close to winning this race in the past, placing in the top 3 three different times, but he had never won until Sunday after 11 previous attempts.
