Six-time NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion Scott Dixon will make history this weekend at the GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the IMS road course as he will make his 350th race start with Chip Ganassi Racing. The milestone is huge in sporting terms as it is more appearances than star quarterback Tom Brady made in the NFL with the New England Patriots.
The Iceman has had an incredible career in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, having won 52 races, 130 podium finishes, and 32 pole positions. The New Zealander took victory in the 2008 Indianapolis 500.
Dixon has previously won here on the IMS road course, which came in 2020. Looking ahead to this weekend’s 85-lap race, Dixon said:
“Definitely looking forward to the Indy GP. It’s a great way to kick off the Month of May entering a different kind of pressure with the 500. It’s a fun, family-friendly weekend and I’m looking forward to getting on track. We’ve had fast cars all year and hopefully we get a great qualifying, have a great race and get after it.”
Dixon has taken one victory here and four podium finishes. He will be looking to score a victory this weekend to kick off his May at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in great style following two tricky races for the Ganassi driver.
Dixon heads into this weekend’s GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the IMS road course in eighth place on 98 points, just six points behind Team Penske’s Will Power.
