Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon has endured two difficult races in Toronto and last time out at the Honda Indy 200 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car course however, the Iceman has all the tools he needs to win the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series championship.
Dixon is just eight points behind series leader Scott Dixon and has been one of the most consistent drivers in 2017.
The Iceman has secured seven top five finishes this season of which five have been on the podium. Speaking following last weekend’s Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio, Dixon said:
It obviously wasn’t the way we wanted the race to go today for the NTT Data car. I really wasn’t 100 percent happy after we tested here last week and in qualifying. I don’t think we ever had the balance right where we wanted it. It felt like something broke on the car and we made some major front wing adjustments in the race. We had a problem on the left rear on pit lane and that took some time as well. Overall, just not our weekend. We held in there and fought, but need to regroup and get ready for Pocono in a few weeks. Points are really at a premium now with four to go.”
Dixon and Ganassi will use the break between Mid-Ohio and Pocono to refocus and come back stronger. The New Zealander is known as the Iceman for his cool and calm approach and that is exactly how he will tackle the final four races of the season.
