Angelelli, Taylor win Grand Prix of Miami

HOMESTEAD, Fla. — Max Angelelli and Ricky Taylor won the rain-shortened Grand Prix of Miami on Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway, in the No. 10 SunTrust Racing Corvette DP.

It marked the 19th victory for SunTrust Racing — second in Grand-AM Rolex Series history, in the headlining DP (Daytona Prototype) class.

The third race of the Rolex Series season, scheduled for 2 hours, 45 minutes, was halted 52 minutes early because of rain, which hampered visibility and caused huge puddles on some portions of the 2.3-mile road course.

Twenty-four of the race's 54 laps were run under caution because of the weather.

"Every year we come here, we're not really looking forward to it because our car doesn't normally suit this track, but our guys did a great job, said Taylor, son of team owner Wayne Taylor. "I think that even in the 'dry' we had a winning car."

Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas, the series' reigning DP class champions, finished second in the No. 01 TELMEX BMW/Riley and in the process took over the DP point lead.

Sao Paulo 300

At Sao Paulo, Will Power won IndyCar's Sao Paulo 300 for the third straight time on Sunday.

The Australian was hardly challenged on the streets of South America's biggest city, finishing ahead of Ryan Hunter-Reay on the 2 1/2-mile, 11-turn Anhembi circuit.

Takuma Sato had a great run to finish third for his first podium after starting 25th, and Brazilian Helio Castroneves was fourth after starting 18th.

Three-time defending series champion Dario Franchitti recovered from an early spin to finish fifth.

It was Power's third straight victory in four races this season, and Penske's fourth straight.
