SHRED THEM UP. SHRED THEM UP. WAY DOWN.
SHRED THEM UP. SHRED THEM UP. WAY DOWN.

It was the motto for the Texas Motor Speedway that should have been nicknamed "The Shredder" due to the fact that track ate up the tires. But Scott Dixon cooled down the track by winning the DXC Technologies 600 on a Saturday matinee. Indy car's Ice Man broke a tie with Michael Andretti enabling to take win #43 in his career becoming 3rd in the Indy Car's all time win list. Simon Pagenaud held off a late charge from Alexander Rossi to take 2nd. James Hinchcliffe would seal 4th in the race with Ryan Hunter-Reay completing the top 5.

The 1st course of action was a pace car for Matheus Leist who would suffer a burned out car in lap 7. Tony Kannan would suffer a brush into the wall that ended AJ Foyt Racing Team their night. The Yellow appeared once again in lap in 173 where Robert Wickens and Ed Carpenter would collide at turn 3 sending them to the wall. 32 laps later Will Power and Zachary Claman De Melo collided right by the finish straight. Power was totally furious during the crash right before he was hit with a penalty for avoidable contact.

During pit stop sequence with lead lap cars, it was Rossi who had a nightmarish night after they could not get the fuel nozzle attached.

Dixon managed to increase his points lead over Rossi (357-334). Power would drop 1 spot to 3rd with Ryan Hunter-Reay in 4th. While Josef Newgarden would drop to 5th after finishing 13th.

The Indy Car drivers will go for a 1-week break before heading North to Elkhart Lake where Road America will await them.

What a race! Much better than the Montreal GP. Gutted once again for Wickens, he just needs a break. Imagine SPM would have possibly had two cars in the top 5 (showing my bias here...).

Rossi sure is on fire, I bet he does well at Road America next race. (Going to Road America, it's going to be great, very excited).
