Indianapolis, IN- If there’s any sure thing to bet on this weekend at the 13-turn Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course it’s that Scott Dixon is going to be a huge threat for the win.
Dixon is coming off a sweep at Toronto three weeks ago in winning both races that weekend. He also won the weekend prior at the 2.5-mile Pocono Raceway and enters Mid-Ohio as winner of the last three Izod IndyCar Series races.
Dixon has a pattern going on and it’s looking more and more like it’s going to stay true to that in 2013. He’s won the IndyCar championship every five years and if history holds true he will win again this season.
Dixon’s first title came in 2003. He next won in 2008 and five years later here he is once again knocking on the door after a disappointing start to the season. Dixie is second in points and trails leader Helio Castroneves by only 29 points entering a track he’s very good at.
The driver of the No. 9 Target Chip Ganassi Honda is the two-time defending race winner at Mid-Ohio and has won three of the last four races there. He has seven straight top five finishes at the 2.258-mile road course just 45-minutes north of Columbus, Ohio.
Since 2007, Dixon has finishes of first, third, first, fifth, first and first at Mid-Ohio. With coming in on a three race win streak and winning three of the last four races there, it’s a safe bet Dixon will be in victory lane at best and a top five at worst this weekend.
This points battle is going to heat up leaving there.
