Tony Kanaan took advantage of teammate Dan Wheldon's misfortune to move into the lead, and then run away from the field on Sunday to win the Argent Mortgage Indy Grand Prix. Kanaan beat Buddy Rice by 1.182 seconds, about eight car-lengths, for his second IRL IndyCar win of the season. It was not a successful day, however, for Danica Patrick. Early in the race, she was taken out by an aggressive move by Ryan Briscoe. Dan Wheldon' then broke his fuel pump on the 53rd lap. That allowed Kanaan to take the lead at the Infineon Raceway. He was able to hold on to top spot for the remaining laps, averaging 91.040 mph around Infineon's 12-turn, 2.26-mile track in the first IRL race held on a road course. He went on to cross the chequered flag first to claim his second race victory of the season. (AP)
