Scott Dixon, the son of two dirt-track racers, climbed behind the wheel of a car for the first time when he was 13

He was the then-youngest winner of a major open-wheel event (Nazareth in 2002) and has won the 2003 and
2008 IndyCar Series championship with Target Chip Ganassi Racing. He won his first race IndyCar Series race
in the 2003 season opener, which catapulted him to the title. He set the pace early in 2008, winning from the
pole in the season opener at Homestead, and also won the Indianapolis 500.
Dixon, who was born in Australia but is a New Zealand citizen, was honored as the 2008 New Zealand Sportsman
of the Year. He is the longest tenured driver in team history.
“I’ve had a very successful career already and I don’t want to stop now. I want to go for records and achieve as
much as I can,” he said. “I’ve had many dreams come true and in motorsports it’s very hard to look a year or two
down the road because it can change within a matter of months so at the moment my next couple years is doing
this. Maybe down the road I’d like to get involved in racing from a business aspect, but at the moment I’m
focused on being a driver.”
