Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda heads into this weekend’s Honda Indy 200 at the Mid Ohio sports car course with a 62 lead in the championship over defending series champion Josef Newgarden.
The Iceman has shown this season why he is one of the best drivers that the sport has seen. Dixon has also got a wonderful team around him in Chip Ganassi Racing with Managing Director Mike Hull, longtime engineer Kate Gundlach.
Dixon’s No.9 PNC Bank pit-crew known as the wolfpack have been one of the best this year.
The Iceman who celebrated his 38th birthday on Monday has won three races so far this season, with his most recent victory coming last time out on the streets of Toronto.
Dixon has been extremely consistent this season and due has been extremely quick this year and has managed to get to the front despite strong competition from Andretti Autosport, Penske and Schmidt Peterson Motorsports.
There are five races to go this season and if Dixon keeps his head down and continues to have results like Toronto he will be on target for his fifth championship.
The Iceman is also not letting rumours about his future get in the way of his season amid reports he has held talks with McLaren about joining their new IndyCar programme in 2019.
