Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda showed why he is a six-time NTT IndyCar Series champion on Sunday in race two of the Detroit doubleheader. The Iceman may have started the race in sixth and come home in seventh however, he is extremely consistent and it shows as he bounced back from a first corner hit on Sunday and ended the race in the top ten which was the New Zealander’s 250th career top ten.
The second race in Detroit on Sunday was Dixon’s 280th consecutive NTT IndyCar Series race start which places him second in the all-time start streak with only his Chip Ganassi Racing teammate Tony Kanaan ahead of him on 317 consecutive starts which date back to when TK made his debut in 2001.
Dixon has scored 51 race wins in his career to date and is the longest-serving Chip Ganassi Racing driver. The Iceman who is 36 points behind championship leader Pato O’Ward has two wins here in Road America, with his most recent win here coming in race one last season while his then-teammate Felix Rosenqvist took victory in race 2.
