The greatest INDYCAR driver of this generation can now officially be mentioned in the same sentence with open-wheel icons A.J. Foyt Jr. and Mario Andretti.

Scott Dixon’s 53rd career NTT IndyCar Series victory in Sunday’s Big Machine Music City Grand Prix not only broke a deadlock with Andretti for second on the all-time wins list, it also positioned the New Zealander for a late-season run at tying Foyt’s record of seven championships.

Dixon’s second victory of the season pulled him within six points of championship leader Will Power with three races remaining on the 2022 schedule. Dixon is bidding to match the series record of seven titles held by Foyt, also the all-time leader with 67 career victories. Dixon won his titles in 2003, 2008, 2013, 2015, 2018 and 2020 _ all for team-owner Chip Ganassi. 

“Yeah, the motivation for seven (titles) is strong for sure,” Dixon told RacinToday.com during a weather-delayed open test at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth in March. “We worked hard in the offseason trying to figure out the areas we needed to work on, and we laid that out pretty well. I love racing. I love the NTT IndyCar Series and what they do.”
