Scott Dixon has gone back-to-back with a win in the first race of the Honda Indy Toronto doubleheader in the No. 9 Target Chip Ganassi Racing Honda. It follows his win at Pocono Raceway a week ago.

Dixon’s pass of Sebastien Bourdais near the end of the race, with the Frenchman fading on Firestone red tires, netted him his first IZOD IndyCar Series win on the streets of Toronto. Dixon’s win is his 31st of his open-wheel career, dating to his rookie season in CART in 2001.

Bourdais, in second, secured his first podium in open-wheel racing since 2007 (a win at Mexico City Champ Car finale), and the first for Dragon Racing in IndyCar.

Dario Franchitti, Dixon’s teammate and the race polesitter, finished third on the road after another Toronto tussle with Will Power. But it wasn’t for long, as he was issued a post-race, 25-second time penalty for a block on Power. Power, who snuck through to the inside, couldn’t avoid the Turn 3 barriers and ended 15th after failing to complete the last lap.

The penalty promotes Marco Andretti to third place.

Hours ago, the race was supposed to have a standing start, but didn’t when Josef Newgarden stalled.

There’s a plethora of videos, news, quotes and more information to come in the aftermath of this one. Stay tuned to MotorSportsTalk for more.

8:30 p.m. ET: Indeed there has been more in the several hours since the checkered flag. But here’s all you need to know: the official results from Race 1 are now posted, and are listed below.
