Scott Dixon led a big day for Chip Ganassi Racing, leading a podium sweep for the team with a win Sunday at the IndyCar Series event at Pocono Raceway.
Dixon was followed by Ganassi teammates Charlie Kimball and Dario Franchitti in IndyCar's first race at Pocono since 1989.
Dixon won for the first time this season and it was his 30th career IndyCar victory. He struggled all season and had led only one lap, at the Indianapolis 500.
He caught a big break when Tony Kanaan clipped Dixon's car on a pass for the lead and was forced to pit road. Dixon dominated down the stretch of the 400-mile race and became IndyCar's eighth different winner this season.
Andretti Autosport qualified three drivers on the front row. But James Hinchcliffe and Ryan Hunter-Reay were involved in accidents and Marco Andretti faded over the final laps.


The 67 car driven by Josef Newgarden and co-owned by Wichita businessman Wink Hartman had a good day at Pocono. Newgarden tied a career best , with a fifth place finish in the Pennsylvania mountains.

"To get representable finishes that prove what we are putting into this team, all the hard work," said Newgarden, "I'm pleased for all our guys. It's really what we want."
