FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Scott Dixon was the fast driver for most of the all-in-one-day delayed opener for IndyCar. Five-time champion Dixon took the checkered flag at dusk Saturday for his fourth win at the 1 1/2-mile, high-banked oval in Texas. He had been the fastest in practice earlier in the day and qualified second. The 39-year-old New Zealander raced to his 47th career victory and matched A.J. Foyt’s record of 18 seasons with a win. After a restart with three laps left, Dixon sped away in the No. 9 Chip Ganassi Honda.
