Auto racing • History will show that Simon Pagenaud won the 2013 Grand Prix of Baltimore.

The lasting image of Sunday's race, however, will be Scott Dixon stuck in his car against the wall after another unfortunate run-in with rival Will Power.

Pagenaud charged to the lead after a series of collisions involving several other contenders on the bumpy, challenging street course that runs through the middle of the city.

Last week at Sonoma, Dixon held the lead until he received a drive-through penalty with 15 laps to go for hitting a tire in the left hand of Power's tire holder.

During a restart on the 53rd lap Sunday, Power swerved right in a crowd in front of Dixon while trying to pass Sebastien Bourdais. Power clipped the barrier, and Dixon ultimately lost control and smacked into the wall, ending his day.

Afterward, a distraught Power said, "I feel terrible. I'm just so sorry."

Power made it to the pit but was given a penalty for interference and finished 18th, one spot ahead of Dixon.

• Chase Elliott wrecked Ty Dillon on the last lap Sunday to win the NASCAR Truck Series race in Bowmanville, Ontario.

At 17 years, 9 months, 4 days, Elliott became the youngest winner in series history.
