Scott Dixon averaged 202.031 mph and won the pole for Saturday's Indy Japan 300 in Motegi. Dixon's run at the Twin Ring Motegi gave him his first IndyCar Series pole of the season, and he earned a bonus point in his quest to defend his series title. It's definitely all-out for me, the New Zealander said. We've got to try to gain obviously the pole point. It's only one, but it definitely helps. It's also good for the ego coming into the race, maybe confidence over some of the others. Dixon...

Dario Franchitti led all the way Sunday in California's Grand Prix of Sonoma, winning his fourth IndyCar Series race of the year. Franchitti avoided a seven-car pileup on the first lap en route to a 0.25-second win over Ryan Briscoe. Track position was critical today, said Franchitti, who started on the pole. It probably wasn't the most interesting race for the fans, but I did what I had to do today. Defending champion Helio Castroneves finished 18th. Briscoe leads Franchitti by four points...

Scott Dixon easily won Sunday's Honda Indy 200 in Lexington, Ohio, and established an IRL record with his 20th career victory. Dixon, driving his Dallara Honda, passed Justin Wilson at the race's mid-point, benefited from a quick pit stop, and was dominant late on the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Wilson trailed Dixon by six seconds but ran out of fuel while coasting for his final stop along pit road. Dixon overcame Sam Hornish Jr. for most career victories in the IndyCar Series. Obviously it's...

Will Power won Sunday's IRL Rexall Edmonton Indy auto race at Edmonton, Alberta. Power started from the pole position, led 90 of the race's 95 laps and relinquished the lead only when he stopped on pit road. His dominance made him a first-time winner on the IndyCar circuit. Power, driving the No. 12 Penske Truck Rental car, led teammate Helio Castroneves by one second when the race ended under a caution flag after an incident involving Tomas Scheckter with less than two laps remaining. It...

Dario Franchitti won Sunday's IRL Honda Indy Toronto auto race after avoiding a series of late-race crashes. He captured the race on the streets of the Ontario capital despite a problem with his left-rear tire during his first stop. Later, the Chip Ganassi Racing driver would benefit when Graham Rahal was involved in an incident just when Franchitti entered pit road before a caution flag. I guess we timed it right with strategy, Franchitti, the 2007 series champion, said following his third...
