Scott Dixon broke two IndyCar records today at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. When he crossed the yard of bricks to take the green flag, he set the new record for most consecutive starts (319) and when he took the checkered flag, he extended his incredible winning streak. The six-time series champion has now won at least one race in 19 consecutive seasons. His first victory of the season also vaulted him into second place in the championship standings with three races remaining.

It was a sensational performance by Dixon, who was actually involved in an accident on the opening lap. He recovered from the spin and was able to hold off a hard-charging Graham Rahal in the closing laps. Rahal started on pole position, and was considerably faster than Dixon over the final stint, but lapped traffic and used tires ultimately caused him to come up just short of his first win in six years.

Just as he did in the road course race in May, Pato O'Ward finished on the podium. His teammate Alexander Rossi won this race last August, and backed it up with a top-five finish today. Christian Lundgaard finished 4th after starting on the front row, putting a bow on a fantastic weekend for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing. Will Power, Alex Palou, Scott McLaughlin, Kyle Kirkwood, and Marcus Ericsson rounded out the top-ten on Saturday.

There was only one caution during the race, which occurred on the opening lap with Palou made contact with his teammate Marcus Armstrong. Dixon spun as well, spelling trouble for three of the four Chip Ganassi Racing cars. Romain Grosjean could not slow and got into the back of Dixon, but then Josef Newgarden came crashing in and went up and on top of Armstrong's car. It was a fatal blow to the title hopes for the 2023 Indianapolis 500 winner.

Newgarden finished 25th and now effectively out of the championship picture. With just three races remaining, Palou has essentially locked up his second title. Palou is making headlines again, as he has reportedly changed course once again in terms of his driving future. Instead of going to Arrow McLaren's IndyCar program, the 26-year old is likely to stay put at Ganassi. He collected another top-ten result today, and has not finished worse than 8th all season long.
