The New Zealand Indy Car driver Scott Dixon has won the Long Beach grand prix for the first time.
It's the 34-year-old's 36th career win, moving him to outright 5th on the Indy Car all time winners list.
The Team Target driver finished ahead of Helio Castroneves in second with Juan Pablo Montoya third.
Dixon, a three-time Indy Car series champion, told ESPN winning at Long Beach fulfils a lifelong ambition.
"I still can't believe we've won here at Long-beach, it's such a memorable and such a worthy track. I'm just so stoked, there's so many Target people here today too, it's one of their events, and just fantastic, I can't believe we've done it."
The win lifts Dixon from 11th to 4th in the drivers championship after three races.
"I like coming here, I love the event.
"All in all, this is huge. Long Beach, I finally get to crack this one and I'm really happy."
Montoya leads the standings, 32 points ahead of Dixon.
