Dixon back on top in Toronto warm-up


After narrowly missing out on pole position in Fast Six qualifying for the Honda Indy Toronto, Scott Dixon and his Chip Ganassi Racing PNC Bank Honda re-established their advantage in Sunday morning’s warm-up, a half-hour practice ahead of this afternoon’s race.

Dixon’s best lap of 59.1394 seconds was enough to reverse the outcome of qualifying, as he edged polesitter Josef Newgarden’s Hitachi Team Penske entry by 0.23s. Newgarden was the only Chevrolet runner in the top six, however.

Conor Daly served further notice that his strong showing in qualifying in his first appearance for Harding Racing was no fluke, as he logged the seventh-fastest time.

Jordan King gave his Ed Carpenter Racing crew some work to do before the race when he clipped a curb in Turn 8 and struck the wall. King is scheduled to start from the eighth position on the grid.
