Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon who drives the No.9 NTT DATA Honda goes into the last race of the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series season, the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma trailing Team Penske’s Josef Newgarden by just three points.
The Iceman knows that winning in California won’t be easy however he has been in this position before and has won the championship under similar circumstances.
If Dixon wins the championship next weekend he will jump up to second behind AJ Foyt in the all time championship wins in Verizon IndyCar Series history. Foyt holds the record with seven championships.
Dixon heads into the final race of the year off the back of two second place finishes in the last two races at Watkins Glen last weekend and the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 presented by Valvoline.
Dixon has had an extremely consistent run of form in 2017 which sees him heads to Sonoma as a championship contender.
