New Zealand IndyCar champ Scott Dixon has won the first race following the lifting of lockdown in the United States.
Dixon qualified second for the event, and claimed the checkered flag at the IndyCar Genesys 300 at Texas.
The race came after a delay of almost three months in the US-based series starting because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
It was Dixon’s 47th IndyCar win.
The victory, Dixon’s fourth in Texas, leaves him just five back of Mario Andretti in second place on the all-times win list.
It was a dominating performance by the New Zealander, who ran away from the pack on a restart with three laps to go after Ganassi Racing team mate Felix Rosenqvist crashed to bring out a caution.
