Dixon is “one of the best of all time,” says Ganassi’s Mike Hull

Dixon has scored 41 race wins in his Indy car career, which stretches back to 2001, and this leaves him just one victory shy of joining Michael Andretti in third on the series’ all-time list, behind only AJ Foyt (67) and Mario Andretti (52). The New Zealander also heads to this weekend’s series finale just three points adrift of championship leader, Team Penske’s Josef Newgarden. Should he win his fifth title it would pull him into a clear second place in the all-time list, behind only Foyt (seven).

Hull suggested that it’s Dixon’s ever-increasing experience in pressure situations that has led to his ever-increasing reliability when the chips are down.

“I think when you’ve won as many races as Scott has won, and championships, and big races, he’s learned to exhale,” said Hull. “And I think he’s the kind of person who works hard for getting the best result from today.
