Kiwi race car driver, Scott Dixon, has claimed his sixth IndyCar Series title.

He finished third place at the final race of the season in St Petersburg, Florida, enough to secure him the title.

He started in 11th position but drove a near-flawless 100 laps.

Dixon’s podium finish was more than enough to claim his sixth title and move closer to the world record of seven titles held by AJ Foyt.

“Six is good, seven sounds better. That’s obviously got to be the goal,” Dixon said as he looks forward to racing in 2021.

Meanwhile, McLaughlin was fizzing after his first 47 laps as an IndyCar driver. Withna full season ahead of him in 2021. the Kiwi is clearly stoked to be apart of the open-wheel category.

“It was awesome. Far out, best day of my life bar my wedding,” McLaughlin said in an interview on the broadcast.

“The Shell V-Power Nitro+ IndyCar was going well and then I just tried to make a move, I tried to block Marco [Andretti].

“I felt like I was there or thereabouts and just had half a rear-lock, I’m not exactly sure. Cold tyres caught me out a little bit.

“Pretty disappointed, but I had a lot of fun today.”
