Untitled Document Half-a-second adrift, Scott Dixon finished second at the Meijer Indy 300 at Kentucky today.

Leading at the restart with 5-laps to run, Dixon was passed and was never able to reclaim the lost position.

Starting from 5th, Dixon in the #9 Target Racing Honda held position until the latter stages of the race where he progressively moved ahead.

“If we didn't have the yellow towards the ends, I think we might have been able to hold Sam off,” he said.
“I think our restart gears were totally different to his, and his seemed to be a lot better. It took us a lap or two to get going and he seemed to get speed straight away.”

“Good points. We really needed to win to try and gain on the championship. So hopefully going into Infineon, we can hopefully gain a little more.”

There are now two races remaining in the 2006 season, with Dixon still in 4th position – 33 points behind the leader.
