Scott Dixon picks up minor penalties after IndyCar win in Wisconsin

Scott Dixon picks up minor penalties after IndyCar win in Wisconsin”

Simon Pagenaud, who was the first driver to qualify on a scorching hot afternoon, was back on a little more level playing field Saturday evening and paced the final practice for Sunday's Iowa Corn 300.

The Toowoomba driver led for 23 laps before Castroneves took over to claim the chequered flag.

Scott Dixon's lead at the top of the IndyCar Series championship has been cut to eight points.

"Helio has added so much to our team, and he continues to show how strong he is in this series", said Penske, who declined to comment on his 2018 driver lineup, particularly as it relates to Castroneves. Dixon now leads Castroneves by eight points and Pagenaud by 31.

"I never doubt. That wasn't even in my thoughts", he said.

Three-time Iowa victor Ryan Hunter-Reay was 3rd and Helio's Penske teammate and pole siiter Will Power was 4th. "I've had great support - and especially Team Penske". It's easy to be behind you in good times, but they've always been there no matter the time, so for me that's priceless. Hildebrand was driving the same vehicle that Josef Newgarden raced to victory at Iowa in 2016 for Ed Carpenter Racing.

The decisive pass of the race came on Lap 268, when Castroneves darted past Hildebrand and leader Marco Andretti into first place. Hamilton was fourth. Bottas is 15 points behind Hamilton and is close to getting into contention for the title. Ron Capps won in Funny Car, Drew Skillman in Pro Stock and LE Tonglet in Pro Stock Motorcycle. The points leader beat Tommy Johnson Jr. with a 4.026 at 319.67.
