Dixon triumphs, ties Andretti for wins

-

Scott Dixon snapped a 22-race winless streak and moved into a tie with Mario Andretti for second on IndyCar’s career wins list with 52 when he held off polesitter Colton Herta and Felix Rosenqvist at IndyCar Toronto, the series’ return to Canada.

Dixon qualified second and spent the day running up front, despite creative fuel and tire strategies as teams jockeyed for track position early in the race.

And the six-time series champ was still out front when Jimmie Johnson and Kyle Kirkwood tangled to bring out the final caution and force a restart with 18 laps to go.
