Tony Kanaan scored his second straight IndyCar Series victory, beating Scott Dixon to win the Meijer Indy 300 presented by Coca-Cola and Edy’s at Kentucky Speedway.

The victory was Kanaan’s fourth win of the season and the 11th of his IndyCar Series career.

"The car was really good," said polesitter Kanaan. "It was a good weekend. I've never had two wins in a row. Unfortunate for Dario again, but thank goodness he's OK again. Let's move on now."

Dixon’s runner-up finish, coupled with Dario Franchitti’s eighth-place finish, cut Franchitti’s points lead to eight with three races remaining. Kanaan is now 52 points behind his teammate Franchitti.

A.J. Foyt IV finished a career-best third, followed by Marco Andretti and Tomas Scheckter.

"It was obviously really good for us and really good for my team," Foyt said. "We just had some great pit stops and that’s what really got me up there. We were running well and in the top-10 all day long, but it was those pit stops that got me up there."

The next IndyCar Series event is the Motorola Indy 300 presented by Jackson Rancheria at 3:30 p.m. (ET) on Aug. 26 at Infineon Raceway. The race will be televised live by ESPN and broadcast by the IMS Radio Network.
