The Firestone Indy Lights duo of Carlos Munoz and Zach Veach took to the streets on Sunday afternoon for their 35-lap race. Making contact after an unknown failure on the No. 26 car occurred, the Colombian was forced to retire early. Teammate Zach Veach made an unscheduled pitstop when a suspected engine problem was causing the No. 12 RePLAY XD machine to slow, but was able to bring home an eighth-place finish.
Immediately following the Firestone Indy Lights race, the fantastic four of James Hinchcliffe, Marco Andretti, E.J. Viso and Ryan Hunter-Reay battled their way through the carnage that was the Grand Prix of Baltimore. Although stopping on track twice throughout the 75-lap race, Hinch made his way back by finishing in seventh place for his ninth top-10 finish in 2013. Third-generation racer Andretti maneuvered his way to the front of the pack to lead 12 laps before his broken front wing befell him, and Marco was able to come the twin checkers in 10th place. Another victim of an unfortunate run-in, E.J. was poised for his first podium of the season (was as high as fifth place and on the move!) when he was hit from behind, forcing the Venezuelan to hit a competitor and break his front nose cone; Viso eventually pitted and was able to salvage a P13 finish after starting 20th. Reigning champion and 2012 Grand Prix of Baltimore winner RHR was not having the race he had hoped or even imagined. On Lap 1, the anti-stall mechanism kicked in on the No. 1 Chevy and Hunter-Reay was seen stranded on the track; he later recovered to eighth place and was plagued with a battery failure just after the halfway point and was forced to retire early in P20.
