Kudos to the team. “We had a big crash there that took half the floor off the car. We had to take four turns of front wing out, so we had no grip. Nashville is so awesome.
The victory, Dixon’s 53rd of his incredible career sees him move into 2nd in the all time winningiest drivers list with AJ Foyt leading on 67.
Speaking about his fellow New Zealander Scott McLaughlin of Team Penske who finished second, Dixon said:
“We were worried about him because I knew he would take chances. “He kind of has to with the standings at the moment. He was super fast, as well. He had fresh tires, too. I was a sitting duck. If there had been a lap or two more, it would have been really tough to do.”
The Iceman concluded saying:
We had to take four turns of front wing off, so we had no grip. I think we did about 45 or 50 laps on that last set of tires. Nashville is awesome and that was such a wild day. These ones are a lot of fun because it’s such a team effort and for all that we achieved
