ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – This is the “there were other races but I’ve typed a ton today so I’ll get to fuller breakouts later” post from the rest of the day’s races on the streets of St. Petersburg.

Felix Rosenqvist (Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires, pictured) and Aaron Telitz (Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires) atoned from Saturday disappointment to secure their first wins in their respective series, in the last two races in the six-race Mazda Road to Indy weekend.

Rosenqvist drove the No. 14 Belardi Auto Racing Dallara IL-15 Mazda, while Telitz drove the No. 82 Team Pelfrey entry.

Rosenqvist beat Kyle Kaiser and Zach Veach in Indy Lights; Telitz led a Pelfrey podium sweep ahead of Pato O’Ward and Weiron Tan.

Meanwhile Michael Lewis emerged at the head of a caution-strewn second Pirelli World Challenge GT race for his second overall win in as many days. Martin Fuentes (GTA) and Sloan Urry (GT Cup) also repeated class wins.

On another World Challenge note, Jack Roush Jr. also swept the weekend in GTS with his second win in class there.
