Kiwi Scott Dixon still in Indy car contention after Japan win...

Scott Dixon
ROAD RACE WIN: Scott Dixon celebrates winning the Indy Japan.


Pole-sitter Scott Dixon of New Zealand won the Indy Japan today to stay in contention for the IndyCar series championship with two races to go.

The Target Chip Ganassi driver held off Will Power, who moved into the championship lead, to capture his second IndyCar win of the season.

''I've got to give a lot of credit to Team Target,'' said Dixon, who won the Honda Indy 200 last month. ''They gave me a great car with great pit stops and great fuel strategy.''

Team Penske's Power moved into first place in the standings with 542 points, 11 ahead of Dario Franchitti, who finished in eight place after being penalized for hitting Ryan Briscoe's car on the 26th lap.

Dixon, who finished 3.4375 seconds ahead of Power, is 59 points out of first place with two races to go. The final two races of the season in Kentucky and Las Vegas are on ovals.

The deadly March 11 earthquake damaged the oval at Twin Ring, so Sunday's 63-lap race was held instead on the recently repaved 14-turn, 4.8-kilometre road course.

Franchitti's chances to hold onto his lead in the overall standings were damaged when he made contact with the right-rear of Ryan Briscoe's Team Penske car entering turn one on the 26th lap.
