Bruno Junqueira won the Champ Cars Monterrey Grand Prix in a race marred by a series of crashes.

After previous winners Sebastien Bourdais and Paul Tracy collided to end their victory hopes, Junqueira hit the front on the 67th lap.

A yellow flag slowed the action two laps later, allowing the Brazilian to cruise to victory.

Britain's Justin Wilson finished fourth as only 10 of the 19 cars in the field completed the 76-lap race.

Canadian Andrew Ranger finished second, 1.376 seconds off the lead, with compatriot Alex Tagliani third, 2.847 seconds adrift.

Another Canadian, Tracy, and defending champion Bourdais battled for the lead during the first half of the race before the two crashed on lap 48.

Running second, Bourdais tried to pass Tracy, but collided and rolled over his front tyre.

Tracy was knocked out of the race, while Bourdais was forced to pit and fell back to 12th.

Bourdais ultimately finished fifth, more than nine seconds off the lead.

It was Junqueira's first victory since winning in Australia last October
