  • Emma Dixon is Howlin Mad




    Fellas our Queen is pissed. Whats going on at Ganassi? Dixon is my boy, and I hate seeing this uncharacteristic mediocrity. Hopefully the fortunes turn later this May for the Big Enchilada

    It’s pretty simple. Lots of people do not want to hear this, but Scott Dixon is getting older and Alex Palou is clearly a better driver right now. This doesn’t mean Dixon can’t still win a race or two, especially the Indianapolis 500, but he’s not the same driver as he was a few years ago.

      Love Palou, but def don't want to hear that. Dixon is the GOAT (of the modern generation)

        I agree that Scott Dixon is the GOAT of this generation, but Alex Palou is clearly the better driver right now.

          Eventually, everyone's talent begins to decline. Scott Dixon may never again win an Indycar race. I hope I am wrong. I will be rooting for him to win the 500 this year.

            I was at 2022 Long Beach GP, & got video of the Ganassi pit just before the race. You can see the HPD engineers (many of them female) doing last minute checks

            Alex Palou made an appearance

            After the race, I spoke with Mike Cannon (Ganassi engineer, for Scott Dixon?), We were talking about drivers

            "Once this driver came along, the car;'came alive' "

            Remember when Mike Cannon became engineer at FCR (Forsythe Championship Racing), AJ Almendinger got TWO straight wins!

            BTW, I ran into Katherine (driving for Hardpoint Racing in IMSA GTD) at the autograph sessions -- Long Beach GP & IMSA Laguna Seca race (Apr 29 - May 1).

                Giving credit when credit is do... Scott Dixon is clearly the best driver currently in the NTT IndyCar Series, no matter what his age is, period.

                  Dixon talking the Indy Car in January: “It's not particularly fast, it's not particularly nimble, it's very heavy, there's not a whole lot of grip, and some of the circuits that we go to are very low-grip, as well…


                  Indy Car: "Enough from you old man!"

                  On a more serious note. I wonder if Dixon is trying out some of Palou's set ups and it isn't working for him. There were rumors that for years the teammates to Dixon had to drive their cars according to Dixon's set ups. Maybe Dixon is getting a taste of his own medicine. Not saying this is true but would be poetic justice if it was.

                    Dixon only worries about Dixon. If a decision was made on setups going from Dixon to his fellow teammates then that was made by Ganassi.

                      Nobody stays fast forever. Scottie is still a great driver but age and new cars that aren't what he built his career on (see: Jimmie Johnson in Cup) eventually getcha.

                          Unless you're Emma Davies Dixon, she still looks 25.

                            It's the exact same car that Scott won the opening four races and the championship with two years ago. This isn't a failure to adjust to the aeroscreen or something of that nature. Either Scott has lost his mojo or Scott's engineers have lost the plot.

                              Me says Scott will win again this year.

                              Emma needs to put a cork in it.
