Former Formula One driver Takuma Sato has become the first Japanese driver to win an IndyCar race with victory on the streets of Long Beach driving his PWR cooled Dallara.

Starting on the second row after qualifying in fourth position, Sato made a strong start and had a good pit stop to take the lead after the first round of pit stops.

In a race which featured a number of caution periods, Sato drove consistently fast to score the first win for A.J. Foyt Racing since 2002. After 3 rounds Sato is in second position in the championship.
