Sebastien Bourdais notched his second IndyCar win for 2015, while Helio Castroneves surged from last on the grid to claim second at the ABC Supply Wisconsin 250.

Castroneves had been demoted to 24th on the grid because he missed a pre-qualifying session deadline but the Brazilian powered through the field in Milwaukee to claim second ahead of Graham Rahal, Juan Pablo Montoya and pole-sitter Josef Newgarden.

"That was a hell of a job by the guys," Castroneves told IndyCar.com.

"We had a little miscue with qualifying but we never lost faith. We focused on the race. I'm just so proud and honoured to be part of this team."

Bourdais - who also won at the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix - led for a race-high 118 laps at the Milwaukee Mile to take the chequered flag.

Reigning champion Will Power failed to finish for the second consecutive race, allowing series leader Montoya to increase his overall lead, while Scott Dixon pushed Power down to third in the standings.
