SCOTT DIXON WINS
Scott Dixon won the last race that IndyCar will do in Japan. They had to change tracks because the one they usually use is only 93 miles from the ill-fated neclear power plant. IndyCar is divided into three championships...the overall champion and two sub-champions for the oval tracks and the road courses. Will Power came in second, cinching his win of the road course championship and putting him well on his way for the overall championship. Marco Andretti, who has been having a tough year, will be very happy with his third place.
The drivers weren't totally excited about racing in a country that is glowing in the dark. And they won't be back, not for that reason, because of the economics.
