Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda says that the team go into this weekend’s Harvest Grand Prix double-header at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course with the mindset of going flat out to get the maximum result out of the events.
Soeaking to Paddock Eye during a Zoom conference call on Monday, the Iceman who heads into the weekend with a 72 point lead in the championship over Team Penske’s Josef Newgarden said that they can’t rely on their past success here.
The Iceman said that the track conditions are going to be a lot different going from 90 degrees on Friday to somewhere in the fifties on Saturday so it will be similar to what they are like when they race in April.
Dixon said things will be different this weekend with 85 laps on Friday and 75 laps on Saturday which result in teams running split strategies and he believes depending on fuel mileage it may favour one group over the other.
Dixon said the team are confident in the cooler conditions that they fair a bit better especially in qualifying and that it plays true.
