Colton Herta wins the IndyCar Series Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in dominant fashion from pole position, denies runner-up Josef Newgarden from the three-peat, and shares a special moment with his father/race-strategist.

Colton Herta won the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, where youth again was served in the NTT IndyCar Series results and points standngs Sunday.

After a dismal 22nd in the season opener at Barber Motorsports Park, Herta shot up to sixth in the points standings. Runner-up Josef Newgarden, who triggered a first-lap crash at Barber, also moved to 10th in the points.

Through two races, the standings are led by Alex Palou, who was 17th Sunday on the heels of his first career IndyCar victory last week at Barber.
