HOUSTON -

Simon Pagenaud picked up his second win of the season with a victory Sunday in the second race of the Grand Prix of Houston doubleheader.

The victory comes a day after Pagenaud started from the pole in the first race but had an early spin and was later collected in Scott Dixon's crash to spoil his race.

The Frenchman was the class of the field Sunday and led rookie teammate Mikhail Aleshin to the checkered flag for a 1-2 finish for team owner Sam Schmidt. It was the Russian driver's first career podium.

Jack Hawksworth, another rookie, drove from last to third for his first career podium. It capped a breakthrough weekend for the British driver, who finished a career-best sixth Saturday.
