Reigning Verizon IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon believes that no one driver stood out during the 2015 season and that:
It was nice to have one of those years where it rolled your way
The Target Chip Ganassi Racing driver won the championship on a count back following a tie with Indianapolis 500 winner Juan Pablo Montoya with the pair ending the year on 556 points with Dixon taking the title due to an extra win with three to Montoya’s two.
The New Zealander, a four time Verizon IndyCar Series champion commented by saying:
Nobody really won a tonne of races or ran away with it for a small part of the season and had everybody trying to roll them back.
Dixon and his Ganassi team had a difficult start to the 2015 campaign with Penske and Juan Pablo Montoya winning the opening race in St Petersburg and taking a sensational victory at the Indianapolis 500.
Dixon has been the most successful driver in IndyCar in recent years having won two titles in the last three year’s.
In 2004, Dixon completed two tests for BMW Williams but remained in IndyCar and along with his Ganassi team mate Tony Kanaan and Team Penske rival Juan Pablo Montoya has to be favourite to add to his title tally in 2016.
While no one driver dominated the season one did dominate the headlines with his fantastic performances. Graham Rahal of the Letterman Lanigan Racing team had a standout season taking two victories for the one car team. Rahal showed that he can challenge and beat the big boys of Ganassi and Penske so 2016 is gearing up to be a great year.
