After the pit road commotion at Sonoma, Scott Dixon still sent a congratulatory text to winner Will Power.
Yes, Dixon’s penalty wiped out his shot at a victory, but he was at least going to be a good sport.
“I respect Will. He’s a fantastic driver,” Dixon said. “We’re going to be competing, hopefully, together for a lot of years.”
That competition, for now, means they can’t seem to get away from each other on the track.
Power spun Dixon in Saturday’s practice. But Dixon got the final payback when he swiped the pole from Power on the last lap of qualifying to take the top spot for the Grand Prix of Baltimore.
