Paul Gohde heard the sound of race cars early in his life.Growing up in suburban Milwaukee, just north of Wisconsin State Fair Park in the 1950's, Paul had no idea what "that noise" was all about that he heard several times a year.

"It's been a long time coming, looking for that first podium and hopefully it can be a foundation to go into more wins", Rossi said. It's very bumpy, very tight, and there are no margins for error.

Pagenaud credited Castroneves with putting one over on him at the start. Kanaan had his brakes lock up while leaving the pits and connected with the protective tires in Turn 1.
