Jack Hawksworth dominated the Toronto 100 from pole to checkered flag for his second Indy Lights victory of the season Saturday.

The English driver qualified first in the morning before cruising through the 50-lap race for IndyCar’s developmental series on the 1.75-mile track at Exhibition Place.

Ireland’s Peter Dempsey followed in second after moving up from seventh and passing Gabby Chaves with five laps to go. Chaves held on for third in the nine-car field.

Matthew Di Leo of Barrie, Ont., in just his second race of the season, was forced to retire with an electrical issue.

The victory is Hawksworth’s second so far after he won the season-opening race in St. Petersburg, Fla. Carlos Munoz, the series leader with three victories, finished fourth.

The race’s first and only incident came just three turns into the first lap. Sage Karam’s put his car’s nose into the tire wall, and was then bumped by Zach Veach. Both cars finished the race.
