SIx-time NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Chip Ganassi Racing Honda has built up some consistency in recent races, which has seen the Iceman move up one spot in the championship.
Dixon ended May with a sixth-place finish in the Greatest Spectacle In Racing, the 107th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge. The Kiwi went on to the Streets of Detroit last weekend and finished the race in fourth place. It was a solid start to the Summer section of the 2023 NTT INDYCAR SERIES schedule.
Dixon started the season well with a third-place finish at the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg and followed this up with a fifth-place finish in Texas.
The Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach saw Scott Dixon retire from his first race in several years. In Alabama, Dixon finished the race in seventh while he had back-to-back sixth-place finishes at the GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the IMS road course while he repeated this result in the 107th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge at the end of May.
He finished fourth place at the Detroit Grand Prix on Sunday. Speaking following the race on Sunday, Dixon said:
“A bit of a frustrating day, because we should’ve finished first or second. The car was really fast; the Honda fuel mileage
was super easy to get and the driveability was great. I think we had a lot more pace than the
two cars finishing just ahead of us. I should’ve used more OT (overtake) after the last pit stop to
get past Will [Power].”
The next race on the 2023 NTT INDYCAR SERIES schedule is the Sonsio Grand Prix of Road America, where he took victory in 2020.
