New Zealand's IndyCar champion Scott Dixon has been named in a six-man roster to race at the prestigious Rolex 24 At Daytona later this month.

Dixon's Chip Ganassi team are favourites to win the title and have named a line-up featuring some of the best talent the motor racing world has to offer.

Last year the team became the first in history to win three consecutive titles and will look to add to the record book again with an impressive group of international racing champions including Dixon and teamate Dario Franchitti.
