Driver, Chip Ganassi Racing
Scott Dixon, the six-time NTT INDYCAR SERIES Champion (2020, 2018, 2015, 2013, 2008, 2003) and 2008 Indianapolis 500 Winner, returns to Chip Ganassi Racing (CGR) for his 22nd season – the longest tenure for a driver in team history (1990-Present). Overall, 2023 will be Dixon’s 23rd season in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES.
Dixon boasts 53 career INDYCAR SERIES wins, second all-time behind only A.J. Foyt (67). His six championships are also the second-most trailing only Foyt. Dixon will enter the 2023 campaign on a streak of 305 consecutive starts that dates back to 2004 (Michigan), which ranks 2nd in series history (Tony Kanaan: 318).
The Iceman produced yet another historic season in 2022. Not only did he soar to second on the historic wins list, but he also seized the Indianapolis 500’s all-time lap leader record (665) and became the first driver in series history to complete 100% of the total laps in multiple seasons (2022, 2020).
Dixon enters 2023 with a win across 20 seasons and a win in 18 consecutive seasons, both all-time INDYCAR SERIES records.
The New Zealand Native became part of British Commonwealth royalty when he was honored by Queen Elizabeth II on the 66th anniversary of her Coronation as Queen of the United Kingdom. Her Majesty the Queen appointed the Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit to him in recognition of his services to motorsports in 2019.
Dixon has also made a name for himself in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, winning the Rolex 24 At Daytona in 2006, 2015, 2018 and 2020.
Away from the track, Dixon enjoys spending time with his wife, Emma, and children, Poppy, Tilly and Kit.
