James Hinchcliffe is back on the podium after winning the Grand Prix of New Orleans.
The race proved to be a huge win for James, Schmidt-Peterson Motorsports, and Arrow Electronics, as well as a jump-start for the young racing season.
James battled through dangerous conditions in Louisiana, driving through a rain-soaked track with numerous caution flags, stating "Visibility was shocking, and there were some pretty big puddles on the track.”
After nearly running out of gas before the finish, Hinchcliffe was able to hold off iconic IndyCar driver, Helio Castroneves, to take his first checked flag since 2013 in Iowa.
