(AP) Ryan Dalziel inherited the lead when Brazil's Rubens Barrichello was forced to make a late pit stop and held off hard-charging Scott Pruett by 3.438 seconds Friday night in the Brickyard Grand Prix at Indianapolis.

Alex Gurney, the son of former IndyCar and Formula One driver Dan Gurney, was third in the Grand-Am Daytona prototype race on Indianapolis Motor Speedway's 2.534-mile, 13-turn road circuit.

Dalziel's co-driver, Alex Popow, celebrated his second straight win at Indy.

Dalziel trailed Barrichello by about 24.5 seconds with 30 minutes left to go, but Barrichello was forced to slow down to conserve fuel. He didn't save enough and was forced to pit with 10 minutes left. He wound up fifth.

Pruett, 15th with an hour to go, moved into second with 7 minutes left but couldn't catch Dalziel.
