Always a favorite heading into any NTT IndyCar Series weekend, five-time series champion Scott Dixon has seen the sport of open-wheel racing change dramatically over time.
Breaking onto the scene in 2000, the New Zealand native is arguably the best driver of the modern era. Accumulating 44 wins, 28 poles, 108 podiums and more than 5,000 laps led between CART and IndyCar competition, it is hard to argue Dixon’s credentials.
This week, Mobil 1: The Grid took the time to showcase Dixon’s illustrious career – from Formula Holden to present – and provide fans with an inside look at the mind of the 2008 Indianapolis 500 winner.
With commentary provided by Dixon himself, the video gives a well-rounded view of the driver’s illustrious history from start to finish – with an increased focus on his relationship with his longtime team owner Chip Ganassi.
