Alex Baron claims maiden Indy Lights win in Toronto

French teenager Alex Baron clinched his maiden Indy Lights win at Toronto.

Dominating the race from the outset, Baron led home his Belardi Auto Racing team-mate and series leader Gabby Chaves.

Jack Harvey (SPM with Curb-Agajanian) held Andretti Autosport driver Matthew Brabham out of third.

Baron was never headed from his pole position in the 36-lap (40-minute) race to win by 1.2s.

Brabham, who slipped one place from his starting berth early in the race, had a lonely run with his team-mate Zach Veach claiming fifth, 10.5s behind the 20-year-old Indianapolis-based third generation racer.

Chaves almost doubled his lead over Veach by now moving to a 21-point advantage. comment policy
