A unique Detroit artist with a distinct sound and flair will put an exclamation point on the first day of the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix.

Conway claims first race of the Dual in Detroit

With his black firesuit with white piping sans sponsor logos, Mike Conway looked somewhat out of place as awards were being presented for Race 1 of the Chevrolet Indy Dual in Detroit presented by Quicken Loans. But to 24 IZOD IndyCar Series competitors, there wasn't anything amiss about Conway standing on the top step of the podium. Not after what he had accomplished in past road/street course races, earlier in the day on the 2.346-mile, 13-turn Belle Isle street circuit and in the 70-lap race. The Englishman, who turns 30 Aug. 19, dominated and set himself up for a $50,000 bonus if he also can win the second race of the inaugural IZOD IndyCar Series doubleheader weekend June 2.

Simon Pagenaud wins his first IndyCar race at second Chevrolet Dual in Detroit By Gloria Rzucidlo

Simon Pagenaud took the checkered flag for the very first time in his career. It was an amazing finish today with a 5.6274-second lead over James Jakes. His previous-best finish was second at Long Beach in 2012. There were eight lead changes in the second Chevrolet Indy Dual in Detroit, which lasted one hour and 56 minutes. The race was 70 laps--or 164.2 miles long--on the 13-turn, 2.35-mile street course. Simon said the race was pretty eventful. "My job was to be first and not look behind. My reflexes are pretty shot right now. We gained one position in every lap. Once we were in the lead, we had to do the laps. The last two laps were difficult. I'm 29 and started racing at age eight. Twenty-one years of hard work and have my dad believe I could do it."
