Scott Dixon Earns 5th Podium In Last 6 Races, Extends Points Lead

ELKHART LAKE, Wis – Will Power’s early race problems was a great sight for Scott Dixon to see.

Despite starting eighth for Sunday’s Kohler Grand Prix, none of Dixon’s competitors thought he’d remain there. He proved them right.

We Had Foyt vs. Andretti In The Past, But Is Power vs. Dixon Actually Better?

INDIANAPOLIS – Unfortunately, the Verizon IndyCar Series doesn’t get the attention like the quote on quote “glory days.” While the numbers are trending back that way, it’s not there yet.

Scott Dixon is a New Zealand native. Will Power is Australian. While they’re two completely different countries, they’re still near each other. The series hasn’t been to…

Scott Dixon Wins A Strategy Filled Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix In Belle Isle

BELLE ISLE, MI – Saturday’s first dual of the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix race weekend was a strategy filled race. The biggest question being asked was which strategy would be the one that gets you to victory lane, a two stop or three stop strategy? Well, when Rene Binder got into the run off area just past the halfway point and Graham Rahal crashed on Lap 45, that put everyone on the same strategy for a last 25 lap dash to the finish. That helped Scott Dixon cruise to his 42nd…
