Day of Thunder for Dixon

Scott Dixon, 23, racing for the Target Chip Ganassi Racing Team, claimed the Indy Racing League title in Fort Worth, Texas. It was his first attempt on the circuit. Finishing 2nd in the season’s nerve-racking final race, the Chevy 500, was enough to see him clear of Indianapolis 500 winner, veteran Gil de Ferran, and a handful of fender chasing rivals. It’s a huge step towards furthering his ambitions to race Formula One. He is backed by motor-sport legend Chris Amon. Dixon, who won $US1 million, was elated, “to come out on top of this … I can’t put it in words. I just feel so happy and can’t wait to come back next year.”
