Pocono IndyCar: Scott Dixon leads Ganassi's first ever podium sweep

Scott Dixon, Ganassi, Pocono IndyCar 2013Scott Dixon spearheaded the Ganassi team's first-ever 1-2-3 finish in an eventful IndyCar race at Pocono.

Dixon crossed the line ahead of Charlie Kimball and Dario Franchitti to secure the win on an afternoon where pre-race favourite Andretti Autosport crumbled.

All three Ganassi cars had started at the rear of the pack, but the trio picked their way through the field and capitalised on their ability to extend a tank of fuel further than their Chevrolet-powered counterparts to take control of the race during the final stint.

It could have been a 1-2-3-4 finish for Honda, but Chevy-powered Penske man Will Power passed Simon Pagenaud late in the race to secure fourth.

Pagenaud lost an additional position to Josef Newgarden just before the end.

The early part of the weekend had been dominated by Andretti, but all four cars encountered problems.

Polesitter Marco Andretti led the most laps, but began to struggle with fuel mileage over his final stint and drifted back to 10th.

His was the only one of the team's cars still running on the lead lap at the end: James Hinchcliffe's race ended at the first corner when he looped up into the wall, while EJ Viso struggled at the back before retiring with a mechanical hiccup.

The most bizarre problem was reserved for reigning champion Ryan Hunter-Reay, who had just entered the pitlane when Takuma Sato, who was running among the leaders, badly misjudged his own entry to the pits, came in way too fast, and punted Hunter-Reay into the wall.

Sato, who later took responsibility for the accident, retired on the spot, while Andretti managed to get Hunter-Reay back out for a while to salvage a few extra points, albeit running 20 laps down.
