Scott Dixon came home with the victory at the Verizon IndyCar Series race at Sonoma on Sunday afternoon.

SONOMA , CA – A long season is getting a little better for an open wheel veteran while another experienced driver put himself one step closer to an elusive tile.

Scott Dixon got past both Graham Rahal and Mike Conway in the final five laps to come home with the Verizon IndyCar Series win Sunday at the Sonoma Raceway. He picked up his 2nd victory of the season and continues to make up for what at times was a rough campaign for himself and the Target Chip Ganassi Team.

Will Power wasn’t near the┬ápodium for the Go Pro Sonoma Grand Prix but his 10th place finish puts him ever closer to a series title that has narrowly eluded him twice in his career.

With a 10th place finish Power increased his lead over Helio Castroneves to 51 points as the series heads to it’s final event at Fontana this Saturday night.

Despite his victory on Sunday Dixon is 103 points behind Power and mathmatically eliminated from winning his second consecutive series championship. 2012 IndyCar champ Ryan Hunter-Reay is also eliminated but Simon Pagenaud still has a shot but will need help since he is 81 points back heading to Fontana.
