Dixon Does It Again Claiming Third IndyCar Title
New Zealander Scott Dixon has claimed his third IndyCar championship, regardless of a fifth place finish at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana. Dixon won the title by 27 points over Power teammate Helio Castroneves.
“It was a crazy day,” said Dixon, a driver for Target Chip Ganassi Racing who also won the title in 2003 and 2008.
“I still can’t believe that we’ve actually won the championship,” the 33-year-old said. “It just means so much.”
Castroneves finished sixth, one lap down to the leaders.
Dixon entered the race with a 25-point lead over Castroneves in the championship standings.
