New Zealand drivers have finished 1 and 2 in the latest Indy car event over the weekend.

Kiwi’s Scott Dixon and Scott McLaughlin finished first and second at the Genesys 300.

The victory was the first for 2021 for defending champion Dixon while McLaughlin, racing for the first time in an oval, claimed his first podium.

Dixon now moves to just one race win behind Mario Andretti on the all-time list. He started the race on the second row of the grid but passed the leader and then led for the rest of the race.

McLaughlin showed he will be a force in this style of racing with his result.

An elated McLaughlin said: “I’ve never been so happy for second.”
