Motorsport: Frustrating day for Dixon

A frustrating day for Scott Dixon at the IndyCar Toyota Grand Prix race on the streets of Long Beach, California.

After starting from the back of the grid, Dixon was forced to pit on the opening lap after being collected from behind.

But he fought back and gradually moved through the field to finish 10th.

Japan's Takuma Sato has secured his first career win, finishing ahead of Graham Rahal.

"I just can't find the words - the boys did a tremendous job.

"It's just fantastic. The car was great, pit stops were perfect ... an incredible feeling.''

Sato has overtaken Dixon in the standings with the New Zealander now third.
