Scott Dixon led 26 laps — two shy of Will Power's race-high 28 laps — and cruised to his 48th career victory and second win of the 2020 season. The feat also marked the 110th Indy car victory for cars owned by Chip Ganassi.
Dixon's sweep of the first two rounds placed him 29 points ahead of Simon Pagenaud with 12 races remaining.
Graham Rahal's second-place finish matched his best result on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course. Simon Pagenaud's podium finish was his second of the season and his fourth on the IMS road course.
A single caution period slowed the race when Oliver Askew spun in Turn 14 on Lap 35, making rear contact with the SAFER Barrier. The race returned to green-flag running on Lap 40.
The session's first of two red flags involved contact between Ryan Hunter-Reay and Santino Ferrucci in Turn 7 that left the No. 28 Honda stopped just off track. Ferrucci was able to continue, but was subsequently assessed a five-minute penalty for avoidable contact.
The second red flag flew when Sage Karam stopped on course in Turn 12, earning a five-minute penalty for causing a red flag.
Will Power, fastest in the session, is the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course track record holder.
