BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — The Latest on the Indy Grand Prix of Alabama (all times local):

11:45 a.m.

Race leader Josef Newgarden has made his first pit stop of the day with 41 minutes left in Monday's completion of the rain-delayed race at Barber Motorsports Park.

Newgarden pitted on lap 49, as did series points leader Alexander Rossi. The time frame is more pertinent since the Indy Grand Prix of Alabama is being run under a 2-hour limit at the picturesque road course.

That stop gave Sebastien Bourdais the lead on No. 50, the first time Newgarden hadn't been in that position. Bourdais has led laps in all four races this season but pitted on No. 55. Scott Dixon, a five-time runner-up at Barber, also stayed on the track longer.

Newgarden has won two of the past three races at Barber, sometimes regarded as his "home track" because it's located a few hours from his Tennessee hometown.

11:10 a.m.

Drivers have returned to a much drier track for the resumption of the Indy Grand Prix of Alabama.

Pole sitter Josef Newgarden remained in the lead through 22 laps Sunday. Drivers got through just over 44 minutes of a two-hour, or 90-lap, race at Barber Motorsports Park.

Newgarden has won two of the past three Alabama races.

Sebastien Bourdais opened Monday in second, followed by two-time race winner Ryan Hunter-Reay, points leader Alexander Rossi and James Hinchcliffe.

The drivers endured a pair of rain delays totaling two hours Sunday before the race was called for the day.

Two-time race winner Will Power is starting in the back after hydroplaning on Turn 1. IndyCar impounded his Chevrolet overnight so it couldn't be worked on.
