IndyCar St. Louis race winner Scott Dixon


Dixon spoke of his experience on oval tracks

Known for his experience in fuel economy and tire protection, Dixon once again outstripped his competitors on oval tracks.

Dixon, who made one less pit stop in the race he started from the back, managed to take the lead by keeping a huge tempo in the last laps.

Dixon, who saw the checkered flag comfortably in the first place, took his second consecutive victory and also cleared the gap in the championship race.

Pato O'Ward, who still could not reach the victory in the season that started well, took the second place. Completing the podium was David Malukas.

The win looked like it would normally go to Josef Newgarden, but he crashed the race with 50 laps left. This accident also meant the mathematical end of Newgarden's championship chances.

Alexander Rossi, Scott McLaughlin and Colton Herta were the other top six finishers.

Alex Palou, who will be on the track to secure the next race championship, remained in seventh place, followed by Felix Rosenqvist. McLaren has found itself in the top eight with all three cars.

The top ten was completed by Marcus Ericsson, who was certain to leave the reigning champions Will Power and Chip Ganassi.
