Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda showed last weekend at the 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil why he is one to watch for the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series championship.
The Iceman who started the race from ninth place on the grid avoided the carnage in front of him and raced extremely well to come home on the podium in third place just behind race winner Will Power and second placed Ed Carpenter.
The Iceman is in fourth place in the champion on 218 points just 25 behind leader Will Power heading into this weekend’s double header in Detroit.
Dixon and Ganassi will be hoping to take their momentum from the month of May into both this weekend’s races and also for the rest of the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series. The Verizon IndyCar Series has a busy period in the next few weeks. Following the month of May, we have the double header in Detroit this weekend and then next weekend we have the DXC Technology 600 at Texas Motor Speedway where Dixon has won before.
The Iceman has a great team within Chip Ganassi Racing with Mike Hull as his race strategist, senior race engineer, Kate Gundlach and spotter Robbie Fast but to name a few members of his crew.
