"The days we get lucky and win a race, just take them".

And although he says that race results matter more than poles, it's still a solid feeling to start from the front of the pack Sunday. Will Power grabbed the one-lap qualifying record (2016, 107.564 mph) and race record (2016, 85-laps, 88.739 mph), while winning both the Pole and Race previous year.

Team Penske's Josef Newgarden claimed his second victory of the 2017 season and his second at Toronto over the past three seasons.

"I've just never had the success that I thought I could get for known reasons", Pagenaud said.

"We didn't win the race, so you can always make it better", Hinchcliffe said.

Rossi seemed more than pleased with his second-place finish in his Honda.

Oakville, Ontario native James Hinchcliffe, meanwhile, told Indycar.com that he just enjoys running the Honda Indy Toronto, regardless of the track's layout: "It should be pretty similar to previous year".

"This finish has been a long time coming", the victor of the 2016 Indy 500 said. "I've always had some kind of interest in different forms of racing and to get into a stock vehicle, which I haven't done yet, at a road course seems like a logical first step".

"We were really at the bottom of the barrel on Friday afternoon, the slowest of the four Andretti cars", Rossi said.

Simon Pagenaud took the pole Saturday for the IndyCar race today at Exhibition Place.

"I feel very satisfied that way".

Canadian James Hinchcliffe was 16th in 1:01.4874. I mean the support that we feel each and every year is incredible.

Newgarden's victory gives Chevrolet its sixth victory of the season, which is a total that is now tied with Honda's six.

"From the moment when we start in go-kart, when you manage to do that special lap it's the best feeling in the world". I thought we had a very fast vehicle, we got a pretty good start, and stayed out of the mayhem.

The win puts Newgarden in the championship hunt as he is now just 23 points behind Dixon. "But you still have to do your homework, you still have to really think about and execute".

Power, starting in fourth, hit New Zealander Scott Dixon's rear at the third corner of Sunday's race, causing him to bounce into the wall.

Dixon has a three-point lead over Castroneves with five races left.

Four-time series champion Dixon holds a narrow eight-point lead over Brazilian rival Helio Castroneves, who was fifth quickest in Toronto.
