I love Scott Dixon and as you may know he just got in a big crash. So what I wanted to tell you is that Thank you so much for keeping him safe. I saw him limping on TV and just wanted to make sure he was ok. I’ve loved Scott Dixon since I was really little, and when I saw the crash I got so scared and started crying. Again Thank You So Much For Keeping Him Safe.
