Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda will come back stronger in 2020 after missing out on claiming his sixth championship last weekend at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.
The Iceman endured a difficult season suffering some mechanical issues, most notably while leading at Portland earlier this month.
The New Zealander went into the Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey 85 points behind championship leader Josef Newgarden who went on to claim his second title in three years.
Despite not winning the title, Dixon and Chip Ganassi Racing can be proud of the fact that despite scoring just two race wins this season consistency kept them in the championship hunt right up to the final race of the year.
The Iceman picked up nine podium finishes which is ironic considering he drives the No.9 PNC Bank Honda.
Dixon ended the year in fourth place on points. Roll on next season, but for now he is off to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to test the Red Bull Advanced Technologies developed aeroscreen.
