Defending NTT IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Chip Ganassi Racing Honda may have closed the gap in the championship to his teammate Alex Palou to 34 points thanks to the Spaniard’s retirement from the Big Machine Spiked Coolers Grand Prix of Indianapolis however, he described Indianapolis as a horrible weekend.

Speaking following the race, the Iceman said that they could have finished the race in the top ten had they spin in qualifying on Friday as they missed having the red tires in the final stint of the race and ultimately led to the team finishing the race in 17th place.

Dixon concluded by saying that the team just needs some luck to come their way. Marcus Ericsson who took victory last weekend in Nashville came home in ninth place while Jimmie Johnson had a fantastic race as he came home in 19th place which was one of his best results so to date.

It was a disappointing race for championship leader Alex Palou in the No.10 NTT DATA Honda was forced to retire from the race due to an engine issue.
