The Auckland motor racing driver Scott Dixon has made it three straight wins in the Indy Racing League with an all-the-way victory in the second race of a double-header weekend in Toronto.

Dixon's lead was as great as 15 seconds at one point, though he was brought back to the field twice by yellow flags.

IndyCar's most successful active driver is up to second in the overall standings, 29 points behind Helio Castroneves, and his 32nd victory takes him up to seventh on the all-time winners' list.
