Sure, he knows a sweep of the Harvest GP doubleheader in Indianapolis would give him six wins this season, matching a career high. He's also aware he needs two wins to tie Mario Andretti for second in IndyCar history with 52. And if he clinches a sixth IndyCar title, he knows he'd be just one behind A.J Foyt's record.

But Dixon didn't get to the verge of making history by making a big deal out of historic moments and he's certainly not going to start now.

Honda ’s IndyCar season wrapped up at Sonoma Raceway in the 2017 season finale. While Team Penske and Chevrolet came out on top of the year, Honda enjoyed some major highs and lows throughout the year. No win than the Indianapolis 500 could ever be bigger for Andretti Autosport

“I feel very lucky and privileged to do what I do," Dixon said. “I really enjoy the people that I work with. They as a whole really drive me, their will to win. I think the whole kind of mindset when you walk into the (Chip) Ganassi race shop throughout the years has never changed. At no point do you not go into a race weekend without thinking about not winning."

Nobody has been better or more consistent than the Iceman this season.

The New Zealand star won the first three races before teammate Felix Rosenqvist finally broke the streak at Elkhart Lake. Dixon earned win No. 4 in late August outside St. Louis.

He posted top-five finishes in eight of the first nine races, has only one finish outside the top 10, has completed every lap of every race and has led the points wire to wire. So naturally, with a 72-point lead and only three races left everyone is trying to catch Dixon.

Quicker than any other Indycar time on the leaderboards. Indycars used to have qualifying boost around here in time trial mode, but there was a patch that took it out, so the only way to take aim at a leaderboard time is to set up a custom event with qualifying enabled.

“You have to be on it every weekend. The team has to be perfect," said Josef Newgarden, the two-time series champ who is second in points. “You have to do a great job as the driver. Everybody has to do a great job every single weekend. You have to have good consistency, you have to have performance at the right points."

Newgarden needs help and lots of it.

Even if he wins both races on Indianapolis Motor Speedway's 14-turn, 2.439-mile road course Friday and Saturday, Dixon can still win the title with two runner-up finishes and one bonus point, which he'd gain by leading a single lap or starting on the front row of either race.

And if Dixon reaches the Brickyard's victory lane for the second time this year, Honda also could clinch the manufacturer's title over Chevrolet with a one-two finish Friday.

While the more likely scenario might be both title chases ending Saturday, Dixon is focused on Friday.

IndyStar freelance photographer Ron Graphman captured the crash between IndyCar drivers Scott Dixon and Jay Howard during the 101st running of the Indy 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. An ensuing red flag stopped the Indianapolis 500 at IMS.

“That’s the ultimate goal, right, to leave this weekend without having to worry about the championship," he said. “The reality is that it’s still going to be very tough."


A handful of prominent part-time drivers are back at the track this weekend, too.

Three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves replaces injured rookie Oliver Askew in the Arrow McLaren SP No. 7 car, marking the first time since 1999 that the Brazilian star hasn't driven for team owner Roger Penske.

Four-time CART champ Sebastien Bourdais of France makes his season debut in A.J. Foyt's No. 14 car and James Hinchcliffe, the 2016 Indy pole winner from Canada, is replacing Zach Veach in the Andretti Autsport No. 26.

Seven-time Indy starter Sage Karam also will be in the 25-car field as a late entrant for Dreyer & Reinbold Racing.


The grandstands that were empty for races in July and August won't be empty this weekend.

Local officials approved the track's proposal to bring up to 10,000 fans into the stands for each of the four days of action this weekend. Fans can watch from the first and fourth turns only and are required to wear masks and socially distance. The speedway seats approximately 250,000 fans for the Indianapolis 500 and annually attracts crowds approaching 300,000 to the world's largest single-day sporting event.

“It's always nice to come back as the winner, and we're excited to see the fans back here," reigning 500 winner Takuma Sato said. “You know winning here is special, but I really wish we could have shared the excitement with 300,000 fans."


Askew's absence, because of lingering concussion-like symptoms, has turned what had been a three-person chase into a two-person for the rookie of the year award.

Rinus Veekay, the 20-year-old Dutchman, leads Spain's Alex Palou by 39 points with three races left. Askew is third with 181 points, 43 points behind Veekay, but will probably be eliminated from the chase Friday.

‘Roswell’ Original Cast: Where Are They Now? .
Cue Dido’s “Here With Me”! Roswell‘s legacy still looms large, two decades later. The series, based on the Roswell High YA books by Melinda Metz, debuted on October 6, 1999. Shiri Appleby, Majandra Delfino, Colin Hanks and Nick Wechsler played high school teens in Roswell, New Mexico, who befriended a trio of teenage alien-human hybrids, played by Katherine Heigl, Jason Behr and Brendon Fehr. Tension ensued as the human teens tried to keep their new friends’ alien origins a secret while a government investigation threatened to expose them all. The show ran for two seasons on The WB and one on UPN before airing its series finale on May 14, 2002. 15 years later, the franchise got new life when The CW ordered a pilot for a reboot titled Roswell, New Mexico. The new series, which debuted on January 15, 2019, recast the main characters as adults, with Jeanine Mason’s Liz — now the daughter of undocumented immigrants — returning to Roswell only to discover that her teenage crush, Nathan Parsons’ Max, is an alien. Appleby raved about the reboot in an exclusive Us Weekly interview in February 2018, a few weeks after The CW announced the project. “I heard! I can’t wait for them to call me to direct an episode. I can’t wait to direct it,” Appleby she told Us with a laugh. “Jason Behr and I are back in touch and really close, and we’re actually looking for something to work on together. I don’t know if it’s Roswell or anything else, but I am excited to direct in the reboot.” The actress has gotten half of that wish fulfilled, at least. She directed the March 2019 episode “Songs About Texas” and will helm the 2020 installment “What If God Was One Of Us,” but she has yet to collaborate with Behr on the show. Scroll down to find out what Appleby, Behr and the rest of the original Roswell cast have been up to.
