The Auckland motor racing driver Scott Dixon hopes that winning the Indy 500 Pit Stop Competition could be a good omen for the team.
Dixon's pit crew received the 60 thousand dollar first place prize for its speed, precision and accuracy.
The winner of the competition has gone on to win the Indianapolis 500 six times and it's the second win for both Dixon and his Chip Ganassi Racing team in the past three years.
Dixon says it's actually one of his most stressful days apart from Race Day because you don't want to mess it up.
Dixon, the reigning IndyCar Series champion and 2008 Indy 500 winner, will start on the third row of the grid in Monday morning's race.
