Six-time NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Chip Ganassi Racing Honda has a big challenge on his hands for Sunday’s 108th running the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge.

The Iceman had both an engine and gearbox change last weekend during qualifying and starts ‘The Greatest Spectacle In Racing’ from 21st place.

The veteran who has already won a race this season in Long Beach is an expect at fuel saving and with the likes of Chip Ganassi Racing Managing Director Mike Hull on his stand and Robbie Fast working as working as his spotter, the Iceman has all the experience he needs to find his way to the front.

Speaking to Paddock Eye on Saturday ahead of qualifying at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway last weekend, Dixon said that there is potential in the car.

It is not inconceivable that by the first round of pit-stops come Sunday’s historic race that The Iceman could find himself in the top ten.

IMS is a tricky beast and while Dixon has had great success here in the past he always says that the race wins that got away from him are the ones that hurt the most such as 2007, when Dario Franchitti beat him and 2020 when Takuma Sato took victory for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing.

What ever happens on Sunday, we are in for one extremely entertaining race day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
