INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Scott Dixon retook the lead with 17 laps to go and pulled away from Graham Rahal to earn his first IndyCar Grand Prix victory.

The five-time series champion beat Rahal to the checkered flag by 19.9469 seconds.

It's the first time in Dixon's 20-year career he has opened the season with back-to-back victories.

He won the season opener last month at Texas. Dixon, of Chip Ganassi Racing, also broke Team Penske's five-year reign on the IndyCar GP title.

Dixon's 48 career wins are third all-time behind A.J. Foyt and Mario Andretti.
