IndyCar in Depth: Scott Dixon’s Texas win

Back in April, I was engaged in a round table conversation with some of my fellow motorsports journalists discussing the Grand Prix of Long Beach. It was Joey Barnes of Tribute Racing who made the comment, “There’s no such thing as an exciting win by Scott Dixon.” I pondered that statement for a moment, and then replied. “I guess I’d have to agree. Dixon always makes it look too easy, he reminds me of the Professor, Alain Prost in that respect.” On Saturday night at the Texas Motor Speedway, ScottRead More
Scott Dixon put on a cerebral performance during the final 148 laps of the Firestone 600 on his way to his second career win at Texas Motor Speedway. Dixon ran a steady first stint after starting in 7th place while Simon Pagneaud put on a clinic up front. The Frenchman led 59 of the race’s first 67 laps. He held the lead after the first pitstop while Tony Kanaan suddenly came to life and took the lead on lap 75 and began to pull away. The race’s only yellow flagRead More
FORT WORTH, Texas – After multiple road and street courses and one superspeedway event in the Indy 500, the Verizon IndyCar Series finds itself at Texas Motor Speedway. The rough and fast 1.5 mile oval set to host its 27th IndyCar race when the green flag drops tonight. The nature of it’s high banking and not quite superspeedway layout has led both the Honda and Chevy camps to experiment with aerokit set ups and with interesting results; Honda is slowly closing the gap. In practice one Takuma Sato took hisRead More
At last week’s Dual in Detroit race two, one young superstar in the Verizon IndyCar Series frequently found himself in the way of another. Jack Hawksworth driving the No. 41 AJ Foyt Racing Honda was spun not once, but twice by Chip Ganassi’s rookie Sage Karam in the No. 8 car. Karam so often the focus of intense media speculation is highly rated in the paddock but has suffered a rough IndyCar season so far, one filled rookie mistakes, he has crashed out of multiple races. He kept it togetherRead More
Chevrolet Dual in Detroit race two winner, KVSH Racing’s Sebastien Bourdais is hoping he can carry the good momentum into tomorrow’s Firestone 600 at Texas Motor Speedway. Bourdais, second among active drivers on the all time win list with 33 victories is more known for his Champ Car prowess and Formula One experience than recent IndyCar success, but the veteran is among the most experienced in the field and gave a great perspective on the coming race. It was good to win again in Detroit. But to carry that momentumRead More
Will Power captured his 3rd consecutive pole at Texas Motor Speedway on a scorching hot Friday afternoon. Power was the first one to qualify and laid down the law early with a two lap average of 218:519 mph that was untouchable by the rest of the grid. Team Penske teammates Juan Pablo Montoya and Helio Castroneves managed to land immediately behind their teammates while Simon Pagenaud patiently waited to fire the final bullet for Team Penske. Pagenaud went out 17th and nearly overthrew his teammate, but came up just .017Read More
FORT WORTH, Texas – Will Power made history today by claiming pole position for the Firestone 600 for the third year in succession. His average speed of 218.519 mph is just shy the qualifying record for Texas Motor Speedway which he set in 2013. The high banked oval once a type of track Power struggled on, is now one the defending champion relishes in. It’s a real driver’s oval, I really like it, I really look forward to the ovals now. – Will Power It was also Power’s 40th poleRead More
