McLaughlin, 30, started from eighth on the grid at Road America and steadily climbed his way up the pack and was in first place at times during the race, which had multiple lead changes.

Fellow New Zealander Scott Dixon, who was the overall series leader heading into the event, finished 21st after suffering a flat tyre during the race which forced him to pit.

Dixon dropped to third in the championship standings behind new leader Power and his Chip Ganassi teammate Alex Palou.

McLaughlin is up to fifth overall, while the third Kiwi in IndyCar, Marcus Armstrong, is 14th overall.

Armstrong started the Wisconsin race third on the grid but was involved in a collision with his pole-sitting teammate Linus Lundqvist on the first lap of the race.

Armstrong hit Lundqvist from behind causing him to spin also damaged his own car and was forced out of the race.
