TORONTO (AP) — Scott Dixon pulled off a weekend sweep through the streets of Toronto that has made him a sudden championship contender.

Dixon was barely challenged at Exhibition Place, needing to pull off two late restarts to preserve what was otherwise an easy Sunday drive.

It was his third consecutive win —in seven days — and it vaulted Dixon from seventh in the standings before last week's race at Pocono to second, 29 points behind series leader Helio Castroneves.
