Castroneves takes Indy pole

6:31 am on 16 May 2009

The New Zealand motor racing driver Scott Dixon says he feels relaxed heading into the final weekend of practice for the Indianapolis 500.

Dixon has qualified fifth on the grid for America's greatest race.

The defending champion says with the compressed schedule this year and the poor weather his build-up has been frustrating and so this weekend's sessions will be important for his set-up for the race.

The race is Monday week.
