Scott Dixon won an Oval Race by 22 seconds. Why? Because Scott Dixon, that’s why.
It was a strategic and fuel-saving masterclass from the IndyCar legend as literally, no one else could run his strategy en route to his second straight win, and the first man to beat Josef Newgarden on an oval in a calendar year. And most importantly, keeps his slim title hopes alive.
And yes, we talk about Josef Newgarden, who finally lost his oval winning streak and ended his title campaign after getting caught in the marbles and hitting the wall. Is it frustrating that the Indy 500 will go a fourth straight year without an Astor Cup. Weird.
We also joke about the upcoming beef between disowned Bus Cousin David Malukas and Scott McLaughlin and Marcus Ericsson completing his move to Andretti Autosport in another IndyCar edition of Motorsport101!
