Luckily, we were on the safe side there.”

Dixon used his years of experience to his advantage while defending at the front. He said, “The stress level was high. Those guys were coming fast and strong. I think we were off by a lap or two of making it easy. Other fuel races I’ve done I’ve had it under control for the full stint.” Fuel became a factor toward the end of the race with Dixon having to balance power with longevity. Ultimately he got the job done. The NTT IndyCar Series released a recap video via YouTube.
