In Saturday evening's race, Sebastien Bourdais was running seventh when he braked in reaction to Colton Herta slowing in front of him, heading for pitlane. Immediately behind Bourdais, Team Penske's Josef Newgarden was caught by surprise and tapped the #14 AJ Foyt Racing-Chevrolet into a spin that sent the 37-time race-winner hard into the SAFER barrier on the outside of Turn 2. Bourdais' teammate Dalton Kellett at least managed to finish on the lead lap, albeit last, and that would be as good as it got for the squad. With the second race, like the first, set by championship points due to the cancelation of qualifying, and with Bourdais having dropped from seventh to 14 th due to the Saturday DNF, he was more vulnerable at the start of the race. As they were rolling toward the green flag, Dale Coyne Racing-Honda's Pietro Fittipaldi hit Bourdais knocking him into a spin that collected Alexander Rossi's Andretti Autosport machine. The melee would also eliminate Conor Daly (Carlin), Ed Jones (Coyne) and Kellett.
