Dixon to be subject of documentary

2 Comments

Four-time Verizon IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon is set to be the subject of an upcoming documentary. Directed by Bryn Evans and produced by Matthew Metcalfe, who also produced “McLaren,” a documentary about motorsports pioneer and legend Bruce McLaren, the film will spotlight Dixon and offer a behind-the-scenes look at his life and racing career.

The yet-to-be-titled documentary is currently in production, with film crews spending time with Dixon and Chip Ganassi Racing at several IndyCar events this year. They also followed his ventures at the 2017 24 Hours of Le Mans.

To date, Dixon has four IndyCar championships, 41 wins, one behind Michael Andretti for third on the all-time wins list, and one Indianapolis 500 victory. Also, Dixon has two overall wins at the Rolex 24 at Daytona and finished on the GTE Pro podium at the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Holmatro, a long-time partner of INDYCAR and title sponsor of the Holmatro Safety Team, have renewed a long-standing partnership that will see Holmatro and INDYCAR continue their partnership in a five-year contract extension.

“Holmatro has been a trusted partner and supplier in Indy car racing for more than 20 years,” said¬†president of competition and operations Jay Frye. “Holmatro’s growth parallels some of the great strides made in safety for INDYCAR drivers and teams. We’re pleased to see this partnership continue, as it is a great benefit to everyone in the paddock.”

Holmatro’s relationship with INDYCAR dates back to 1991, when they first supplied tools to the safety team of the CART sanctioned PPG IndyCar World Series. Holmatro branding will continue to be featured on the firesuits, vehicles, and transporters of INDYCAR’s safety team throughout the agreement.

“Holmatro is extremely pleased to extend our partnership with INDYCAR for another five years,” said Tony Barboza, general manager for Holmatro. “We’re extremely proud to be affiliated with the premier on-track safety team in the world. Members of the safety team serve on their home fire departments when not at INDYCAR events and, like them, we believe in constant improvement and innovation. When the race is for life, you can count on the INDYCAR Safety Team and Holmatro rescue tools.”
