Dixon helps unveil teaser trailer for 'Born Racer' documentary
INDIANAPOLIS (Friday, May 25, 2018) - The highly anticipated documentary on four-time Verizon IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon, "Born Racer," scheduled for release later this year, unveiled its teaser trailer today at Indianapolis Motor Speedway ahead of the 102nd Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil.
"Born Racer" is the powerful and inspirational story of dedication, danger, fear and the rare will to defy all personal limitations that Dixon has demonstrated in his successful Indy car career. The 2008 Indianapolis 500 champion ranks fourth in all-time Indy car victories with 41 - one behind third-place Michael Andretti. The 37-year-old New Zealander will start Sunday's Indy 500 from the outside of Row 3.

Along with his wife, Emma, and team owner Chip Ganassi, Dixon debuted the documentary trailer for media attending "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing" this weekend.
"'Born Racer' is a big milestone for me personally, so I couldn't think of a better place to launch the teaser trailer than the Indianapolis 500," Dixon said. "It's strange seeing yourself on the big screen, but also rather exciting. I hope it will give people a real insight, not only into the cars and the drivers, but the entire racing community and the huge amount of work that goes into making this all happen."
Co-produced by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment Content Group and GFC Films, "Born Racer" was filmed last year with an all-access lens, following Dixon and the Chip Ganassi Racing team to Verizon IndyCar Series races and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. It also delved into the personal lives of the Dixon family.
The film was directed by Bryn Evans and produced by Matthew Metcalfe and Fraser Brown. Metcalfe produced the popular "McLaren" documentary that premiered last year.
