Firestone Tire Performance Recap: We saw a number of different tire strategies over the weekend, with first-time winner Simon Pagenaud taking the checkered flag on the primary tires. James Jakes, using a different tire strategy, opting to finish on the alternates and held off Mike Conway to take second place. Conway, winner from Dual 1 on Saturday, again ran a very strong race to take third place on the primaries.

From race winner Simon Pagenaud, #77 Schmidt Hamilton Motorsports Dallara/Honda/Firestone: “The car was super-fast and the (Firestone primary) black tires were very good today. The (Firestone alternate) reds were just perfect and worked really well at the beginning of the race."
