Description
The DXC Technology 600 is an IndyCar Series race held at Texas Motor Speedway near Fort Worth, Texas. The race is held on a Saturday night in early June. From 1997 until 2005, it served as the first race after the Indianapolis 500. It resumed this place in 2010 and in 2011. When it debuted in 1997, it was the first IndyCar race in the state of Texas since 1979.
The IndyCar Series races at Texas have widely been regarded by media, fans, and competitors, as the best racing in the series. Side-by-side racing has produced some of the closest two-car and three-car finishes in series history.


FORT WORTH, Texas – Scott Dixon put a stranglehold on the second half of the DXC Technology, leading the final 119 laps at Texas Motor Speedway to win and move into sole possession of third place on the all-time Indy car victory list.
Dixon, driving the No. 9 PNC Bank Chip Ganassi Racing Honda, won by 4.2943 seconds over Team Penske’s Simon Pagenaud to collect win No. 43 in his 18-year career. The four-time Verizon IndyCar Series champion had moved into a tie for career wins with Michael Andretti just a week ago when he won the first race of the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix doubleheader on June 2.
Starting seventh, Dixon methodically climbed his way toward the front. He took the race lead for the first time on Lap 130 of 248 on the high-banked oval hosting its 30th Verizon IndyCar Series race since the track opened in 1997.
The 37-year-old New Zealander didn’t surrender the point the rest of the way to pick up his third win at Texas Motor Speedway. The others came in 2008 and 2015.
