Aiming for Two
Auckland Indy Car champion Scott Dixon, 28, “is the driver to catch” ahead of the Rexall Edmonton Indy on July 24 -26, and with three wins under his belt already this season, Dixon says he hopes to win a second championship title. “I think we’re definitely in a position to do it. I think I had four wins at this stage last year, so we have to pick it up a little bit,” he says. “I think it’s definitely a possibility and something we can achieve, and that would be a hell of a goal to go for. You have to try and keep those high expectations. It’s very hard to do, it’s very tough. I guess the challenge is going for records and saying you won two in a row. That’s the motivation.” Dixon won his first championship for current team Target Chip Ganassi Racing in 2003. He lives in Indianapolis.
