WEST ALLIS, Wis. (AP) - Sage Karam won his first career Indy Lights race Saturday with a victory at the Milwaukee Mile.

Karam started from the pole but was passed by Zach Veach in Turn 1. Veach led the first 56 laps before Karam reclaimed the lead with a pass on the inside of Turns 1 and 2.

``I didn't get the start I was looking for, kind of got jumped,'' Karam said. ``Zach went before the green, before the start came. I was kind of mad about that because usually when you qualify first, it's your pace, you go, then the field goes.''

Veach said Karam didn't go on the green.

``The start was a little late,'' Veach said. ``I guess I had my head up more than Sage at that point.''

Karam pulled away after passing Veach and beat Carlos Munoz by 1.0808 seconds to the finish line.

Munoz was second in his first race since finishing second in last month's Indianapolis 500.

``I think I learned a lot in Indy, just to be patient,'' Munoz said. ``I overtake the traffic really good. It helped me. Last year we struggled here.''

Veach wound up third.
