NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 9/04/2017

New Zealand driver Scott Dixon has been pipped for pole position for the second round of the IndyCar championship in California.

Dixon was second-quickest for his Chip Ganassi Racing team at the Grand Prix of Long Beach IndyCar event.

He was eclipsed by Team Penske rival Helio Castroneves of Brazil, who claimed pole for the third consecutive year.

Castroneves and Dixon were followed by Ryan Hunter-Reay and James Hinchcliffe on the street circuit.

Dixon placed third in the season-opening round in Florida last month.
