The four-time Verizon IndyCar Series Champion (2003, 2008, 2013, 2015) and 2008 Indianapolis 500 Winner returns to Chip Ganassi Racing (CGR) in 2018 for his 17th season - the longest tenure for a driver in team history (1990-Present). 

Dixon holds the distinction of being the winningest active Indy car driver with 41 victories and is currently ranked fourth on the all-time Indy car win list - just one behind Michael Andretti for third. In addition, he ranks second on the all-time list for most consecutive starts with 224 straight dating back to the 2004 race in Michigan.

In 2017, Dixon won his third Indianapolis 500 pole position (2008, 2015), and his win at Road America extended his INDYCAR record streak of consecutive seasons with a win to 13. He finished third in the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series Championship, which placed him in the top-three for the title race in 10 of the last 11 seasons.

Along with a legendary INDYCAR career, Dixon has also made a name for himself in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship by winning the Rolex 24 At Daytona in both 2006 and 2015. 

The New Zealand native has 287 Indy car starts, producing 41 wins, 26 poles, 141 top-five and 204 top-10 finishes (2001-Present).
