IndyCar: Scott Dixon triumphs in Toronto

DAY

Six-time IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon took advantage of the Toronto event to taste victory for the first time in 23 races on Sunday.

The Chip Ganassi Racing driver just passed pole position holder Colton Herta at the finish line. It was Dixon's 52nd career victory and his first since May 2021. Swede Felix Rosenqvist completed the podium.

The New Zealand driver passed Herta in 32nd lap during a pit stop and no longer looked back, he who led the race for 40 laps. In particular, he held on after the last flying start of the event, on lap 62, and set a final time of one hour, 38 minutes and 45.31 seconds.

This is Dixon's fourth victory in the Canadian metropolis.

By virtue of the results of this race, the 41-year-old athlete climbed to fourth place overall in the series, tied with Josef Newgarden at 307 points. Marcus Ericsson still dominates his competitors with 351 points, but he had to settle for fifth place on Sunday.
