One More Award.

It had to be Dixon!


After my earlier posting there reallywas only one other that needed to be added.

The Most dominant weekend Award in 2016

Nobody put a bigger stamp on a race weekend than No. 9 Target Chip Ganassi driver Scott Dixon did in the Verizon IndyCar Series' return to Watkins Glen International. The 36-year-old New Zealander topped the timesheets in every practice before posting a pole time that was an amazing 5.61 seconds quicker than the previous lap record held by Ryan Briscoe. 

Once the green flag waved on the INDYCAR Grand Prix at The Glen presented by Hitachi, the four-time series champion made himself scarce, pulling a huge gap and easily managing the race from the front. To add insult to injury, Dixon cruised to his fourth Verizon IndyCar Series win at The Glen with plenty of fuel to spare, while the rest of the drivers struggled to make their Sunoco E85R ethanol last. He took the checkered more than 16 seconds ahead of Josef Newgarden now signed with Team Penske for 2017 and beyond replacing Juan Pablo Montoya.

Dixon may for the first time in years placed out side of the final podium steps in the quest for the championship but one thing is very much for certain he is ALWAYS there and should never ever be written off.

Don't forget to check out my books on and my personal stories from the Indy 500.
