Dixon wins third race in a row

TORONTO – Scott Dixon has swept the doubleheader weekend at Toronto with an easy victory Sunday on the street circuit at Exhibition Place.

It’s Dixon’s third consecutive win – in seven days – and it vaulted him from seventh in the standings to second.

His 32nd career victory also gave Dixon sole possession of seventh on the all-time wins list.

Dixon was challenged briefly twice on a pair of late restarts, but he smoothly pulled away. The race ended under caution because of an incident between Will Power and Ryan Hunter-Reay on the final restart.

IndyCar points leader Helio Castroneves was second and Sebastien Bourdais third to claim his second podium of the weekend.
