Indycar series champ Dixon appears on Letterman Show.

INDIANAPOLIS, Wednesday, Oct. 15, 2003 -- New IRL IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon appeared on the "Late Show with David Letterman" on Oct. 14 in New York.

The visit to Letterman's popular late-night show capped a busy day of interviews with journalists from the United States and Dixon's native country of New Zealand. Throughout the day, Dixon, 23, took in the sites of New York but also completed several phone interviews back to New Zealand where his popularity and accomplishments have headlined the country's sports scene.

It was the first trip to New York for Dixon.

"It was awesome, the entire experience," Dixon said. "I had a lot of fun in New York. It's such a huge place, and I really enjoyed myself. The Letterman show was very cool, and I'd like to do it again someday. Dave is very funny, and I really felt comfortable the whole time. It was a great experience."

Dixon will continue his championship media tour beginning Oct. 22 at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla. He will be honored at the Indy Racing League Championship Celebration Oct. 25 at EPCOT at Walt Disney World Resorts.
