With Scott Dixon on a seemingly unstoppable roll, the NTT IndyCar Series will get another chance Sunday to try to contain the five-time series champion less than 18 hours after his latest victory.
Dixon scored his 49th career victory Saturday and third consecutive to open the 2020 season, overcoming a ninth-place starting spot to win at Road America, which became the first IndyCar track to have fans in attendance this year.
IndyCar will return to the 4.014-mile road course in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, for the back end of a Saturday-Sunday doubleheader in the REV Group Grand Prix that will begin at noon ET on NBC.
