Scott Dixon has taken the lead in the IndyCar Series, just six days after his horrific crash in the Indianapolis 500.

He's finished second in this morning's race in Detroit to move ahead of Helio Castroneves at the top of the standings.

Dixon says it was a difficult race.

He says physically it was tougher than normal as he was favouring a lot of things.
