Dixon wins again

 

Scott Dixon came from behind on Saturday night at Kentucky Speedway, passing Helio Castroneves exiting the final turn on the 200-lap Meijer Indy 300 to take podium.

It was the second win in a row and the sixth victory of the season for Dixon, tying the record of Chip Ganassi Racing teammate Dan Wheldon as he races toward what would be his second IndyCar Series championship.

The victory also extended Dixon's lead to 78 points over Castroneves in the race for the season championship with only three races remaining.

Dixon's team-mate Dan Wheldon finished fifth to remain third in the standings.

Dixon, who led 151 laps after starting from the pole, found himself running third for most of the final 30 laps.

When he came out of the pits on Lap 194, he was more than six seconds behind Castroneves, who had last pitted on Lap 143, however the Team Penske racer ran out of fuel on the final lap and couldn't hold off the charging Dixon.
