AR1 spoke with Scott Dixon, who has been walking gingerly on his right foot since his crash in the Indy 500, after qualifying sixth for race one this morning. Dixon commented, "We are struggling on the reds and we have way too much bottoming. Hard to get the time out of the car. I like the one shot qualifying session better because we don't waste so many tires. During the race, it depends how the race plays out, whether it is fuel or not. That will make the difference for me."

Scott Dixon has cast doubt over his fitness to race in this weekend’s IndyCar double-header in Detroit after a horrifying crash during the Indianapolis 500. The 2008 Indianapolis 500 winner was quickly cleared to drive by IndyCar Medical staff but later returned to the Infield Care Center at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to be fitted for a walking boot after injuring his left ankle.

During the Victory Celebration Dixon revealed in his speech that caravan retailer Camping World is expected to sponsor his #9 entry for the rest of the season.

However, in doing so he also hinted that the ankle injury he sustained in the shunt is worse than originally thought and may cause him to miss the double-points round in Detroit.

“I think our sponsor Camping World is going to be back for the rest of the year and that’s definitely great for us," Dixon noted.

“I think I got them a little bit of air time recently.

“I’d like to thank my family and my wife Emma for looking after me because I’ve been a bit of a cry baby today.

“I hope everybody has a great night and we’ll hopefully see you in Detroit."

The crash came after a rollercoaster month at Indianapolis for the 36-year-old.
