Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Chip Ganassi Racing Honda scored his 200th INDYCAR SERIES career top-five finish in Saturday’s Gallagher Grand Prix on the IMS road course.

The Iceman beat the Ironman, Tony Kanaan’s record for consecutive race starts on Saturday, and started the race from 15th following a tricky qualifying on Friday.

Dixon was caught up in a first-lap incident that saw the six-time series champion spin at turn seven. As a result, it dropped him down to the back of the field.

Dixon and the No.9 PNC Bank crew did a great job with fuel saving and tire management to claim victory by just 0.4779s from Graham Rahal, who finished the race in second place.

Not only was it Dixon’s 200th top-five finish, it was also his 54th career victory. Dixon also won the Jostens Biggest Mover Award, making up 14 positions from where he started. After the race, Dixon said that the win was made extra special, having made the biggest moves.
