Scott Dixon Wraps Up His Second IndyCar Series Titles

Post by raikkonen4ever » 08 Sep 2008, 17:27

Scott Dixon has clinches his 2nd IndyCar Series titles after such a dramatic finish.

As Dixon started his final lap, everyone was holding their breath (including the competitors). As Scott Dixon and Helio Castroneves were wheel to wheel barreling down the frontstretch. At the line, it was Castroneves by a nose. Actually 12⅛ inches (0.0033 of a second). Firstly the official decided that Dixon won the race but after they see a photo finish it was Castroneves and it's the second-closest finish in IndyCar Series history.

Here is the last 5 laps of the race video:

PS. Hold your breath :)
