Consistency Has Brought Dixon To The Front This Season
Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon in the No.9 NTT DATA Honda has had a roller-coaster 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series season to date. The Iceman suffered a retirement last weekend in Texas after being caught up in an accident with Takuma Sato.
Dixon heads to Road America leading the points standings by 13 from reigning series champion Simon Pagenaud.
The Iceman has scored four podium finishes and secured the Verizon P1 Award for the 101st running of the Indianapolis. Chip Ganassi Racing made the return to Honda power over the winter moving from Chevrolet and the move showed promise from the start of the season as Dixon scored a third place finish at the season opening Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg.
Dixon finished the Grand Prix of Alabama in second place and went on to finish the Indy Grand Prix in second place and in the Chevrolet Dual in Detroit Race 1 he secured a second place just behind race winner Graham Rahal.
