Scott Dixon Wins Indianapolis 500 Pole

08 May 2015: Verizon IndyCar Series driver Scott Dixon (9) during the practice for the Grand Prix Of Indianapolis at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis, IN

Scott Dixon will lead the charge for all drivers at the 99th installment of the Indianapolis 500 after earning the pole position in Sunday’s qualifying. Dixon was the fourth driver out on the track to qualify, but held onto his lead while 30 others attempted to best him.

This is the second time Dixon will start from the pole position at the Indianapolis 500. He started there in 2008 and subsequently won the race.

Various delays caused qualifying to be a single attempt for all 34 drivers.

Dixon’s pole victory for Chip Ganassi Racing snapped a run of eight consecutive Verizon IndyCar Series pole positions for Team Penske.
