10:32 am on 5 August 2013

The New Zealand motor racing driver Scott Dixon has dropped a couple of points off the Indycar championship lead after a 7th place finish in the latest round in Ohio.

Dixon started third on the grid, but a 2-stop pit strategy didn't work as he slipped down the field.

The race was won by Charlie Kimball.

Dixon remains second in the standings, but is now 31 points behind Helio Castroneves, who finished just ahead of him today.

There are 5 races remaining.
