Defending NTT IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Chip Ganassi Racing Honda went into Sunday’s Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in 4th place in the championship, 49 points behind his teammate Alex Palou.
The Iceman who started the race from 8th said that the event was pretty miserable and he was disappointed to have not been able to come away with a stronger points haul.
Dixon is now out of the championship race and was not happy about Takuma Sato colliding with him meaning that he damaged the floor of his car.
Not quite the day the iceman @scottdixon9 wanted to have on his 350th @IndyCar start. The reigning champ brings it home in P13.#BankOnThe9 | #FirestoneGP pic.twitter.com/vqnCkyIJcy
