Scott Dixon topped off his first win of the season earlier this week with back-to-back wins at Toronto’s Honda Indy this weekend, raking in an extra $100,000 in bonus money. To sweeten the deal, the two wins have moved Dixon into second place in the IndyCar standings with 396 points – 29 points back from leader Helio Castroneves who finished second at this weekend’s races.
Dixon, a New Zealand driver, led 81 of 85 laps at this year’s event at Exhibition Place to take his 32nd career win. That means he’s in seventh place for most IndyCar wins and the highest rank still active today. If he puts the pedal to the metal and avoids collisions, he may well be on his way to the IndyCar championship. Up next is the race at Mid-Ohio, where Dixon came out ahead last year.
