Chip Ganassi Racing’s Managing Director Mike Hull has told Paddock Eye that two of Scott Dixon’s race wins stand out for him as the Iceman prepares for his 300th Verizon IndyCar Series start in Mid-Ohio this weekend.
The New Zealander heads to Mid-Ohio with a 62 point lead in the championship over Josef Newgarden with just five races to remaining in 2018.
Dixon heads to Mid-Ohio following his victory last time out in Toronto.
