Scorr Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Chip Ganassi Racing Honda carved his way through the field from 16th on the grid to win the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 at World Wide Technology Raceway to claim back-to-back victories following his win two weeks ago at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course.
The Iceman used a three-stop strategy to win his 55th career INDYCAR SERIES. He came home nearly a lap ahead of second-place finisher Pato O’Ward and David Malukas, who went back-to-back with a podium finish with a third-place finish just ahead of Alexander Rossi.
Scott McLaughlin was fifth, just ahead of Colton Herta and Alex Palou, who now has a 74-point lead over Scott Dixon, and with Josef Newgarden hitting the wall, he is now out of the championship, meaning that it will be a Chip Ganassi Racing driver, who will be crowned champion in two races time.
Felix Rosenqvist came home in eighth place just ahead of Will Power while Marcus Ericsson rounded out the top ten.
Rinus VeeKay had a great race carving his way through the field from 20th to finish the race in 11th place just ahead of Romain Grosjean and AJ Foyt Racing’s Santino Ferrucci.
Ryan Hunter-Reay came from 23rd on the grid to finish the race in 14th place just ahead of Kyle Kirkwood and Conor Daly who led home his Rahal teammate Christian Lundgaard.
