INDY: Scott Dixon edges Colton Herta to win at Long Beach


Share post:

Scott Dixon conserved fuel efficiently to hold off Colton Herta and win the IndyCar Series’ Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach on Sunday in Long Beach, Calif.

Dixon needed just one tank of gas to complete the final 34 laps of the 85-lap race. He finished in 1:42:03.1416, just ahead of Herta (1:42:04.1214).

Racing in the No. 9 PNC Bank Chip Ganassi Racing Honda, Dixon earned his first victory of the season and the 57th of his career. He won at the same track in 2015.

Alex Palou, the defending IndyCar Series champion, came in third in the No. 10 DHL Chip Ganassi Racing Honda. Josef Newgarden and Marcus Ericsson rounded out the top five. Newgarden led for 19 laps and was the biggest thorn in Dixon’s side until Herta ran into him, causing his No. 2 Hitachi Team Penske Chevrolet to anti-stall.

The series continues next Sunday with the Children’s of Alabama Indy Grand Prix.
