Briscoe holds off Hunter-Reay to win Honda GP

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Ryan Briscoe was thinking about settling for a second-place finish when he suddenly saw opportunity ahead of him on the track.

Getting ready for a restart with just 14 laps remaining, Justin Wilson, who had led more than half of Sunday’s season-opening Honda Grand Prix inexplicably slowed, just enough to give Briscoe a run.

"I was a bit surprised," Briscoe said. "Justin had been doing great restarts, and it looked like he changed his strategy. He was normally accelerating right at the entrance of the far chicane, really going deep into the last corner and then it was difficult to stay close.
