Scott Dixon who secured his 40th Verizon IndyCar Series victory at Watkins Glen on Sunday has confirmed that he will donate his prize money to the Justin Wilson Children’s Fund.
The driver of the No.9 Target Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet took his fourth win at the Watkins Glen circuit adding to his 2005, 2006 and 2007 victories having taken a dominant win.
The New Zealander was extremely quick over the weekend topping the time-sheets in all of the practice sessions and the Verizon P1 Award on Saturday.
The only thing Dixon didn’t manage to get was the fastest lap of the race which went to his team mate Tony Kanaan in the No.10 NTT DATA Chevrolet. Speaking following the race, Dixon commented by saying:
A huge thanks to everyone who has been giving to the Justin Wilson kids’ fund, I’m actually going to donate my winnings here today to their children’s fund. I want to say hi to everybody. Please keep supporting them.
Justin took victory at the Glen in 2009, scoring Dale Coyne Racing first victory in 25 years of IndyCar competition and reflecting on that race, Dixon said:
I was thinking about Justin a lot this weekend. Last time we had a good battle here and he kicked my butt.
