A six-time NTT IndyCar Champion, Indianapolis 500 winner and pole-sitter, not to mention plenty of other wins throughout his career, Scott Dixon is a very humble yet extremely talented race car driver. Always a good interview, Dixon took time to tell us about his season so far at the 2022 Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach (another race he’s won) and also his thoughts about going back to Indianapolis to have another crack at the win. Dixon has honed his craft every year and always extracts the most from his machinery as evidenced by his 16th place start in Long Beach and sixth place finish. After starting on pole at Indy this year, a speeding penalty dropped him way down the order but he was able to salvage a top 10 finish (ninth) to keep him in the championship hunt for the remainder of the season where he ultimately ended up third overall in points. Enjoy!

The long-tenured Chip Ganassi driver, Dixon, is shown here pushing hard through the marbles and slippery surface of Turn 10 at Long Beach.
Whether it’s on Shoreline Drive at Long Beach (above), the high-speed oval of Indianapolis, or even the high-banked oval and road course at Daytona, Dixon has won at all three iconic venues and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down.
