Coming off two wins on oval courses, Ryan Hunter-Reay showed he can also dominate a street course, winning the Honda Indy Toronto on Sunday.
In taking over the points series lead, Hunter-Reay led the final 28 laps of the 85-lap race. He is the first American-born driver to win three straight since AJ Allmendinger in 2006.
Hunter-Reay won under caution after numerous pileups followed a restart with three laps remaining. The trouble began when Sebastien Bourdais bumped and went into the wall on Turn 1. A few seconds later, Dario Franchitti, Ryan Briscoe and Simon Pagenaud and Ed Carpenter became entangled in Turn 3.
Hunter-Reay made it through, just beating Charlie Kimball to the corner and holding him off before the yellow flags. Kimball finished second, followed by Mike Conway.
