Alex Lloyd led flag to flag at St. Petersburg to earn his fourth Indy
Pro Series victory. Lloyd, who has won three of the last four races
dating back to last year, is coming off his first oval win last weekend
at Homestead Miami Speedway.

Lloyd nearly lost control of his Sam Schmidt Motorsports No. 7 on a
lap 18 restart when Jay Howard hit him from behind as the pair reached
the first corner. "I didn't make a good restart," Lloyd admitted. "Jay
(Howard) was right behind me. Unfortunately, instead of trying to
overtake me he decided he was going to try to ram me off the track.
Luckily, I managed to keep it one."
