James Hinchcliffe has won the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach in Long Beach, Calif. He has won the first two races of the Verizon IndyCar Series.

This is his first win since his near-Fatal crash at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 2015. It is his fifth career win. 

Hinch, as he is known, is the first Canadian to win this race since 2004. Paul Tracy, who was then a driver for Forsythe Racing, won back-to-back races in 2003 and 2004 at the street course. 

Hinchcliffe is the third Canadian to win the race since it was established. Tracy won the race three times overall, while Gilles Villeneuve also won in 1979.

Sebastien Bourdais was the second-place finisher. Josef Newgarden rounded out the podium with a third-place finish.

This is Newgarden’s first podium for “The Captain” Roger Penske after switching over to the team in the offseason.
