Rossi Gets Back on Track with First Podium Finish after Nightmare Start to Season

Three disastrous races to start the season had left the perennial championship contender 22nd in the series standings, 124 points behind leader Scott Dixon. Rossi qualified 10th in the No. 27 AutoNation/NAPA AUTO PARTS Honda, narrowly avoided mayhem in the first turn on the first lap when separate incidents sent teammate Ryan Hunter-Reay and Graham Rahal off course. From that point forward, Rossi raced his way up to third place to get on the podium for the first time this season. Rossi needed to become a hero Sunday to keep this season from becoming a zero.
