PNC Bank Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon says he is super proud of his No.9 crew after taking a dominant win in the opening race of the Chevrolet Dual in Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix on Saturday.

The Iceman who started the race from second place on the grid and led 39/70 laps to claim the 42nd win of his Verizon IndyCar Series career.

The win was also the first victory for PNC Bank who are the primary sponsor to the No.9 Honda. Speaking following the race, the Iceman commented on his victory by saying:

“It’s always nice (to win). I think right now, with the competition in the Verizon IndyCar Series, it’s just through the roof. If you look back a few years, you can sort of run off five or six victories in a season, and it seems those days are pretty much gone. I’m super proud of everybody at Chip Ganassi Racing, and obviously PNC Bank’s first victory. Finishing third in Indy is nice, but really people only care about who wins at that place, so it’s always tough leaving Indianapolis unless you’ve won. But it’s always nice to rebound strong in Detroit. Honda has done a superb job, Top six for them here in the Motor City is a pretty big deal and congratulations to them. We’re going to come back and do it all again tomorrow. Would have been nice to celebrate a bit tonight.”
