CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — IndyCar Series leader Scott Dixon has signed a contract extension with Chip Ganassi that will likely take the four-time champion through the end of his career.
Dixon is in his 17th season driving for Ganassi. His career began in 2000 with PacWest Racing, but the team ran out of money three races into the 2002 season and Dixon was picked up by Ganassi. His tenure is the longest of any Ganassi driver.
The New Zealand native has won the Indianapolis 500, his 44 career victories trail only A.J. Foyt and Mario Andretti on the all-time win list. At 38, he's leading the series in pursuit of his fifth IndyCar title. Dixon has three wins this season and leads Alexander Rossi by 46 points in the standings.
