#IndyCar driver Scott Dixon in Toronto

The two time winner of the Honda Indy Toronto is in town meeting the press after taking the pole position for the upcoming Indy 500 race. Update: Scott ended up crashing and flying through the air during the race. Luckily his machine kept him in one piece. See the video here.

Scott won the open wheel Verizon IndyCar Championship in 2013 which was the year he captured both races in the doubleheader at Toronto's Exhibition Place.
His P1 pole position for the 500 saw his average time for four laps the fastest since 1996 so his ride is primed for the win. Driving the number 9 Chip Ganassi Racing car the New Zealander is currently in second place in the 2017 Championship standings, just behind Simon Pagenaud.

Scott and teammate Dario were recently robbed at a Taco Bell in the United States and they have issued this statement. "Scott Dixon and Dario Franchitti are completely fine after being held up last night by two men at a fast food restaurant in Speedway, Ind. Thank you to everyone for all of your concerns about their well-being. However, we will allow the Speedway/Indianapolis police departments to handle the situation and while they conduct their investigation we will refrain from making any further comments to allow Scott to focus on the upcoming Indianapolis 500.”
