Six-time NTT IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Chip Ganassi Racing Honda says he is relieved to have taken his first race win of the 2022 NTT IndyCar Series season after taking his fourth career victory on the streets of Toronto, his 52nd career victory.
Speaking to Paddock Eye following the race on Sunday, the Iceman said that he doesn’t want to predict what will happen in the next few races particularly next weekend in Iowa with the event there being a doubleheader and worth double points.
Dixon told Paddock Eye that the last time they were in Iowa, in 2020, he finished second in race one and fifth in race two but he feels that the events next weekend will play a big part in which direction the championship will go for 2022.
Dixon heads into the double-header weekend in Iowa in fourth place in the championship, 44 points behind leader and Chip Ganassi Racing team-mate Marcus Ericsson.
In scoring his 52nd IndyCar Series career victory, Scott Dixon has tied Mario Andretti for second on the all-time list of IndyCar Series race winners and said following the race that AJ Foyt’s record of 67 wins is probably safe.
