Speaking of 22 laps to go, Team Penske's ace in the hole, Josef Newgarden is taking the lead while Zachary Claman de Melo and Spencer Pigot got caught in a mess at turn 8 and Robert Wickens' overtaking surprise at turn 5. With drizzle occurred at the last 22 minutes, drivers switched themselves to wet tires while some are confused to get back on track.

Pit after pit, and with weather conditions gone crazy, the battle for the top spot is everybody's game for Newgarden and Sebastien Bourdais themselves and in the end, last year's champion dominated the Honda Grand Prix of Alabama while Ryan Hunter-Reay placed 2nd and James Hinchcliffe placed 3rd.
