VIRTUAL BROOKLYN, Mich. -- The IndyCar NTT Series made its return to Michigan International Speedway virtually Saturday, but there was plenty of real action from the waving of the green flag in the Chevrolet 275.

Several cars went airborne during a multicar pileup on the opening lap of the third round of the IndyCar iRacing Challenge. It resulted in some striking images and five laps of caution that greatly affected the remainder of the 85-lap race.

With officials keeping the race caution-free, the strategy played into the hands of Simon Pagenaud and his No. 22 Chevrolet, which led the final four laps to win over teammate Scott McLaughlin. Dale Earnhardt Jr. finished third in his IndyCar iRacing Challenge debut.

RESULTS: Where everyone finished at Michigan
