Back to Back Wins at ‘The Glens’
Kiwi driver Scott Dixon of Target Chip Ganassi Racing has won the Watkins Glen Indy Grand Prix for the second consecutive year. Dixon’s win – his first for 2006 – moves him up two places in the overall standings, from fourth to second, on 170 points. “It was extremely tough because of the conditions,” says Dixon. “It just started raining and it was hard to tell how hard to push it because you have 10-15 guys behind you that will push as hard.” ‘The Glen’ is one of America’s oldest and best known road courses. Dixon joins the ranks of NZ racing greats who have competed at the New York circuit, including Bruce McLaren, Denny Hulme and Chris Amon. Wade Cunningham also competed at this year’s event.
