Dixon Hopes Title Charge Continues on Indy Road Course

Tuesday afternoon at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Scott Dixon playfully requested driving advice from Dan Wheldon’s sons following their exhibition karting laps around the 14-turn, 2.439-mile road course. Oliver, who is 11, suggested Dixon try driving deeper into Turn 1. For all of Dixon’s success in this series – six season titles, an Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge victory in 2008 and 52 race wins overall – he has lacked something recently on the IMS road course that he can’t pinpoint. After four consecutive top-two finishes from 2017-2020, including a win, Dixon has an average finish of 10.75 over the past four races. “But for me it’s more about the (Firestone) tire (on road courses). At least Dixon knows he has the experience to run well this weekend, and he is one of six drivers who have competed in all 12 NTT INDYCAR SERIES races on the IMS road course. Like recent struggles on the IMS road course, Dixon can’t explain the late-season success.
