SONOMA, Calif. (AP) - Scott Dixon took advantage of Dario
Franchitti's late collision to win his fourth race of the IRL season and take the lead in the IndyCar Series championship with two races left. Tony Kanaan finished second at the Motorola Indy 300.
Franchitti started from the pole and dominated the 80-lap race
at Infineon Raceway until the last round of pit stops. Marco
Andretti and Franchitti banged together late in the race, setting
the stage for Dixon to win.
