In the season opening race of 2021, CGR driver Alex Palou (2021 NTT INDYCAR Series Champion) secured his first career win at the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park with Scott Dixon rounding out the podium in third place. Palou has said learning from a (six-time) champion such as Dixon “100 percent” helped him earn his first title.

An NTT INDYCAR Series car weighs approximately 1,700 pounds without fuel or the driver. When it comes to tires, they’ll be designed, developed and delivered to more than 60 different race tire specifications to meet the extensive and varying demands of the unique oval, road and street course venues in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES schedule. Each INDYCAR team goes through about 700 tires per season, including practices qualifying sessions and races. 

Scott Dixon returns to CGR in 2022 for his 21st season — the longest tenure for a driver in team history. Dixon holds the distinction of being the winningest active INDYCAR driver with 51 victories and is currently ranked third on the all-time INDYCAR win list—behind only Mario Andretti (52) and AJ Foyt (67).

The top speed of an NTT INDYCAR SERIES car is approximately 240 mph. When Scott Dixon and the No. 9 PNC Bank Honda team won the pole position for the 2021 Indianapolis 500, he topped the charts with a four-lap average of 231.685 mph

Considered the best driver of his generation, Scott Dixon also is known by many in the INDYCAR paddock as “The Iceman” for his cool, calm and collected demeanor

Only six crew members are allowed over the wall during a pit stop. Positions include inside and outside front tire changer, fueler, airjack, inside and outside rear tire changer, among others. During a typical pit stop, the crew will change four tires, add 18 gallons of fuel, and make adjustments in under 10 seconds

Another Winning Season

Scott Dixon got off to a historic start in 2020, winning the first three races of the pandemic-shortened season as well as his 50th all-time IndyCar race. That put him in the driver's seat for his sixth series championship. Relive the 2020 season with this highlight video.
