Two checkered flags, US$100,000 in bonus money and a move up to second place in the IZOD IndyCar standings. For Scott Dixon, it was quite the weekend.
Or rather, it has been quite the week.
The Target Chip Ganassi Racing driver, who won his first race of the year on July 7 at Pocono Raceway, continued his success in Toronto with back-to-back checkered flags in Saturday and Sunday’s Honda Indy Toronto. Now, with three wins in the last eight days and some extra spending cash for his team, Dixon has suddenly become a favourite to capture the series championship. (Photo: Chris Young/The Canadian Press)
