Prior to joining CGR in 2002 after PacWest failed due to financial issues, he made his Championship Auto Racing Teams (CART) debut in 2001 with the PacWest Racing team. In his third series appearance, he claimed his first significant open-wheel victory.

In 2003, Dixon and CGR made the switch to the IndyCar Series, where he won the championship in his first season with three victories.

After a winless 2004 season, he won one race in 2005, finished fourth with two victories in 2006, and came in second to Dario Franchitti with four triumphs in 2007. With five victories (including the Indianapolis 500), Dixon captured his second IndyCar championship in 2008.

Dixon finished third overall with two victories the season after winning four races to claim his third series championship.
