Reigning Indycar Champion joins Scott Pruett and Joey Hand In The No. 01 Ford Ecoboost Riley for Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta
Seven-time TUDOR United SportsCar Championship champions and six-time Rolex 24 At Daytona winners Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates (CGRFS) announced today that reigning Rolex 24 At Daytona Winner and four-time Verizon IndyCar Series Champion Scott Dixon will join Scott Pruett and Joey Hand in the driver lineup of the No. 01 Ford EcoBoost Riley Prototype for the historic Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta on Oct 3.
Scott Dixon nearly pulled off a weekend sweep of karting events at New Castle Motorsports Park.
A day after winning the Dan Wheldon Memorial Pro-Am Race honoring Justin Wilson, the reigning Verizon IndyCar Series champion teamed with Verizon IndyCar Series star Josef Newgarden to finish second in the 12th annual RoboPong 200, endurance karting event.
Four arms rise simultaneously in a subjective response to “Who will give Chip Ganassi Racing Teams its 100th Indy car victory?”
Through two races of the Verizon IndyCar Series season, Scott Dixon was off to his worst start since 2009.
It certainly was too early to be overly concerned, he said, following 15th- and 11th-place finishes. Maybe, but his results in eight previous starts in the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach — one top-five finish — wouldn’t necessarily pump up the three-time series champion’s confidence entering the 80-lap race.

After scoring a maximum five points in the opening segment, the No. 01 entry driven by Scott Pruett, Joey Hand, Charlie Kimball and Sage Karam finished the second segment in the third position while the team’s No. 02 entry driven by Jamie McMurray, Kyle Larson, Tony Kanaan and Scott Dixon was second at the end of each segment.
Scott Dixon overtook race leader Mike Conway on Lap 83 of 85 and went on to win the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma.
Dixon, who started third in the No. 9 Target Chip Ganassi Racing car, led Ryan Hunter-Reay across the finish line by 1.1359 seconds. Simon Pagenaud finished third after overtaking Conway, whose No. 20 Fuzzy’s Vodka Ed Carpenter Racing car ran out of fuel with about 350 yards left.
