Defending NTT IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon who drives the No.9 PNC Bank Honda for Chip Ganassi Racing has been extremely consistent during the 2019 season having secured seven podium finishes including victory in Detroit race 2.
The Iceman start Saturday night’s Iowa Corn 300 at Iowa Speedway from eighth place and went a lap down and found himself in 16th place but managed to work his way though the field and recovered to finish the race in second place behind race winner Josef Newgarden.
Dixon and his team showed why they are five time series champions with that performance on Saturday night and although his is 98 points behind Josef Newgarden in the race for the championship there are still five races remaining this year including the double points season finale Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey.
Chip Ganassi Racing have proven time and time again that they are a serious championship contender and that has shown over the last few years.
Despite scaling back from a four to a two car team at the end of 2017 the team remain competitive and with seven podiums so far this season Scott Dixon shows that he continues to be a force to be reckoned with. The Iceman who turned 39 on Monday has won at Mid-Ohio five times since 2007 and will be looking to add a sixth victory here this weekend.
