Scott Dixon topped the times in the final IndyCar warm-up session in Toronto. The Ganassi driver’s best lap of 59.9117s came in the final minutes of the session, and a late red flag – triggered by HVM’s Simona de Silvestro hitting a tyre that had come loose from a barrier in Turn 2 and crashing into the wall – prevented anyone else from being able to better his time. Simon Pagenaud (Schmidt Hamilton) was closest to Dixon, finishing up just 0.0073s off Dixon’s time, with AJ Foyt’s Mike Conway and Andretti’s Ryan Hunter-Reay just behind him.

IndyCar race director Beaux Barfield says that a combination of human error and a computer glitch were responsible for Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon mistakenly being issued with a drive-through penalty at Milwaukee. Dixon was penalised for jumping a restart, despite that restart being waved off moments later when leader Helio Castroneves went too early, meaning that the actual restart did not come until the following lap. According to Barfield, the timing system and replay system in race control had fallen out of synch by 36s, which meant that the first restart on the replay system corresponded almost exactly with the second restart on the timing system

Scott Dixon set the pace at the latest IndyCar oval test at Texas Speedway on Monday. The two-time series champion led a 1-2-3 on the timesheets for the Ganassi squad as he took his Honda-powered Dallara around the track in 24.664s on what was the DW12′s first outing at a 1.5-mile high-banked oval “For the first time coming here, you’re open-minded as you try to figure out what the car’s going to be like, and until you get through the first couple of runs you’re not sure what to expect,” said Dixon, who completed 104 laps and set his best time in the morning session. “The cars have a range of options, which I was pleasantly surprised with.
March 25th, 2012
Scott Dixon has conceded that he did not have the pace to fight Helio Castroneves for the victory in the closing stages of Sunday’s IndyCar race in St Petersburg. The Chip Ganassi Racing driver, who finished second, lost the lead to Castroneves when the Brazilian drove around the outside of him at Turn 1 with 27 laps remaining
March 23rd, 2012
Scott Dixon opened the 2012 IndyCar season by setting the fastest time in the first practice session at St Petersburg.

The second group of 16 cars took to the track for a two-day session following Monday and Tuesday’s initial 10-car group test of the new DW12 IndyCar. Despite issues in the morning restricting him to only a handful of laps, Dixon was immediately quick – setting a 51.9674-second lap that stood as the day’s best and eclipsed the times from earlier in the week

Scott Dixon edged away from Will Power to win the final Motegi IndyCar race, as Power took the points lead after title rival Dario Franchitti was involved in a collision. Ganassi driver Dixon headed Power’s Penske Dallara throughout the 63 laps, pulling away a little in the closing stages after they had run a second or so apart for most of the distance. But any frustration Power felt at being unable to get on terms with Dixon was alleviated by knowledge of Franchitti’s messy day
September 17th, 2011
Scott Dixon denied Will Power pole position for the IndyCar Series’ Motegi round, but Power will still start seven places ahead of title rival Dario Franchitti, who could only manage ninth. The result is only the second time all year that Penske driver Power has been beaten to pole on a road course, with Dixon (Ganassi) having already been the man who ended his pole streak at Lexington last month. Power hung back early in the Fast Six session, letting his rivals fight for provisional pole

August 6th, 2011

August 6th, 2011
Scott Dixon will start from pole position for the first time in 2011 after a commanding performance in qualifying at Mid-Ohio. Having topped his Group and Round 2, Dixon banged in an early 1m08.0776s effort in the final six shoot-out which was never bettered – giving the Kiwi his first pole of the season and the 16th of his career.
May 22nd, 2011
Scott Dixon is sure that the Ganassi team’s fuel error cost him pole position for the Indianapolis 500, but said he would not hold it against his crew any more than they would resent a driver making a mistake. Both Ganassi cars ran low on fuel at the end of their runs in the ‘Fast Nine’ pole shoot-out, with Dixon slowing from a pace that looked set to give him pole but still getting second, while Dario Franchitti fell right back to ninth on the grid as he ran dry on his last lap. “Dario obviously missed on fuel a little more than what we did,” said Dixon

CONCORD, N.C. — Cruz Pedregon may be out of contention to claim his third NHRA Funny Car world championship after missing the 2010 Countdown, but he performed like a title contender in his wire-to-wire triumph Sunday in the O’Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Nationals at zMAX Dragway. Joining Pedregon in the winner’s circle were Larry Dixon (Top Fuel), Greg Anderson (Pro Stock) and L.E
August 23rd, 2010
By Bruce Martin SONOMA, California — Will Power left little doubt that in 2010 the IZOD IndyCar Series driver was the “King of the Road.” By driving to a decisive victory in Sunday’s Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma County at Infineon Raceway, Power scored his fifth victory in the nine road course races this season. He dominated the race by leading all but two of the 75 laps in the contest.
August 22nd, 2010
Will Power extended his IndyCar lead by winning at Sears Point a year after breaking his back in a practice crash at the circuit. The Penske driver resisted huge late pressure from Ganassi’s Scott Dixon to clinch his fifth victory of the season, having yesterday taken a season-record eighth pole position, in the final road course event of the year. In an entertaining race that saw the difference between the two Firestone tyre compounds produce plenty of intrigue and place-swapping down the order, Power was always able to control events from the front, leading by eight seconds at one stage
