"We are very pleased about having Scott continue his relationship with the team for many years to come," said team owner Chip Ganassi. "Target Chip Ganassi Racing is all about winning and with Scott we have a proven race winner and series champion. We want to continue to build on that together. Putting this contract together with Scott at this point of the season is key because it now allows us to put our entire focus on the 88th running of the Indy 500 and on working to defend our 2003 Championship. Scott is making a commitment to the team, and the Target team is making a commitment to him. Together we are committed to winning."
"I very happy to continue to drive with Target Chip Ganassi Racing for the next few years," said Scott Dixon, driver for Target Chip Ganassi Racing since 2002. "They've always proven that they were committed to winning and we did that together. There is more that we can do together. I want to defend my championship and I want to win the Indianapolis 500. We can now concentrate exclusively on doing that this year and next year and the year after that as well."
Scott Dixon and teammate Darren Manning will be back on track for the final practice prior to the 88th Indianapolis 500, this Thursday, May 27th, for Carb Day.
