Dixon cool about Miami showdown

1:03 pm on 7 October 2009

Auckland driver Scott Dixon's closest challenger for back-to-back IndyCar titles is in his own camp with fellow Target driver Dario Franchitti right on his rear wheel for the championship.

With one race to go Dixon holds a narrow five-point lead over the Scot Franchitti with Australian driver Ryan Briscoe third, eight points back.

So Sunday's showdown at Miami is a winner-takes-all scenario... but Dixon's as cool as ever about the challenge from Franchitti.

He says perhaps you give your team-mates a little more room but they both want to win the title.

However he hopes one of them wins it for their Target team and not Briscoe.
