INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Simon Pagenaud has won the inaugural Grand Prix of Indianapolis by stretching his fuel to the finish on the road course at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The Frenchman was one of several drivers to gamble on fuel strategy, and made it last for the final 29 laps to earn his third career IndyCar victory on Saturday.

Ryan Hunter-Reay was second, followed by Helio Castroneves, Sebastien Bourdais and Charlie Kimball.

The race began with a violent wreck when pole-sitter Sebastian Saavedra stalled on the standing start. He was hit by multiple cars, and debris struck Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard as he waved the green flag.

Later, James Hinchcliffe was carried from the track following an accident. IndyCar said he was transported to a hospital because of an unspecified injury.
