Hunter-Reay wins 2nd straight year in Alabama

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – Ryan Hunter-Reay coasted to his second straight victory at Barber Motorsports Park when the rain-shortened IndyCar race finished under caution.
   
A full-course caution came out for the final seven minutes of the timed race after rookie Mikhail Aleshin lost control and went off the track. That left Hunter-Reay unchallenged, with Andretti Autosport teammate Marco Andretti finishing second.
   
Scott Dixon was third, followed by Simon Pagenaud and pole-sitter Will Power.
   
The race started after a 2-hour, 26-minute delay for heavy rain and lightning. It was run under a 1-hour, 40-minute time limit.
   
It’s the 12th career win for Hunter-Reay, who started on the pole and led the most laps in the previous event at Long Beach before his race ended with a wreck.
