IndyCar Driver Preview: Scott Dixon


#9 Scott Dixon

  • Team: Target Chip Ganassi Racing
  • Engine: Honda
  • Sponsors: Target
  • 2012: Third Place, 2 Wins, 1 Pole

2012 WRAP: Given his run of poor luck, it was remarkable Dixon ended 2012 just 33 points behind champion Hunter-Reay. Dixon finished fourth or better in eight races, and 10th or worse in the remaining seven. His Detroit win was dominant and his Mid-Ohio triumph came courtesy of a better final pit stop. If only he didn’t have even one or two of the issues that popped up throughout the season…

2013 OUTLOOK: Dixon’s a title contender as long as he stays with Target Chip Ganassi Racing, which was announced Wednesday as through 2015. This year marks the New Zealander’s twelfth season in the Target colors and although he only has one Indianapolis 500 and two championships to show for it, you’d be hard pressed to bet against him for either achievement this year. He just needs the luck to follow.
