Double Top-Five for Team Target at Texas

FORT WORTH, Texas (June 6, 2010) -- Team Target earned two top-five finishes at the Firestone 550K at Texas Motor Speedway with Scott Dixon earning fourth and Dario Franchitti placing fifth.

Franchitti started from the second position and ran up front through much of the race - leading 86 laps of the 228-lap event.

Dixon lined-up fourth on the grid and also ran up front - remaining in the top-five throughout most of the race.

With the finishes, Franchitti becomes the championship leader with 246 points and Dixon sits third in the championship with 235 points.

Up next for Team Target is Round 7 of the IZOD IndyCar Series at Iowa Speedway Sunday, June 20.

Scott Dixon: "Not a bad day for the Target team with a double top-five finish today. Our car was solid and we held our ground for the most part. Outside of that it wasn't your typical Texas race and things got strung out a bit at the end. We'll take the points and move to Iowa."

Dario Franchitti: "Great car in the front tonight, not as much in traffic. We led a bunch of laps and the Energizer car was really fast. It was a great job for Team Target. We were set up to run up front."
