AVONDALE, La. – Juan Pablo Montoya got some extra mileage out of his season-opening IndyCar series victory, thanks to a rain out of qualifying Saturday in the inaugural Indy Grand Prix of Louisiana.
The gird order for Sunday's race outside New Orleans was set on points for the season. And because there has been only one race, drivers will start in the order they finished in St. Petersburg, Florida, two weeks ago.
That's good news for the four Team Penske cars that finished in the top five.
But it's a frustrating setback for Chip Ganassi Racing driver Scott Dixon, who had the fastest time in Saturday's practice. Now he'll have to start 15th.
Fellow Ganassi driver Tony Kanaan, who had Friday's fastest practice lap, will still have a good grid spot based on his third-place finish in St. Petersburg
