Reigning Verizon IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon has reacted to the announcement earlier today that Target will leave the series and his Chip Ganassi Racing team at the end of the season by saying:
I can’t thank Target enough for their partnership on and off the track over the years, They have been with the IndyCar team for an amazing 27 years, which is unheard of in professional sports, and on the car I’ve driven for the past 15 seasons. I have nothing but great memories and much thanks for Target being great partners for so long.
The New Zealander who is currently in fourth place in the Verizon IndyCar Series points standings heading into this weekend’s Honda Indy 200 at the Mid-Ohio sports car course will be hoping to give Target a great send off as the season draws to a close.
Dixon has one victory and one Verizon P1 Award in 2016 with his win coming at the Desert Diamond West Valley Phoenix Grand Prix at the start of the season while his pole came last time out at the Honda Indy Toronto.
Chip Ganassi Racing are the most successful team at the Mid-Ohio sports car course having taken 10 victories with Dixon the most successful driver at the circuit having recorded five wins here.
