FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Even with all the speed, Scott Dixon still hadn't led a lap all season when he left Indianapolis last month.

Now with two wins in a span of eight days, four-time IndyCar Series champ Dixon heads into the back half of the season as the points leader. Both previous times he won at Texas, like he just did for a third time with a dominating performance, Dixon also won the season title.

"We won two races and led a bunch of laps. That's a positive," Dixon said after his win late Saturday night at the 1 1/2-mile Texas oval, a week after the No. 9 Chip Ganassi Racing car also went to Victory Lane in the first race of the Detroit doubleheader.
