Dixon takes the lead


After finishing third at Watkins Glen in New York, New Zealand's Scott Dixon has moved into first place in the IndyCars championship

Dixon started the day trailing his Target Chip Ganassi Racing team-mate Dario Franchitti by one point, but now leads Franchitti and Ryan Briscoe (Team Penske) by 19 points.

Briscoe was second behind Justin Wilson.

Wilson was 4.9 seconds ahead of Briscoe.

Dixon said the car was average but the team did a great job to get him on the podium - but just he couldn't match the pace of Wilson.

But the Kiwi says Wilson's victory is actually beneficial for him.

Dixon said it is better than having Briscoe win - in terms of the overall scheme of things.
