HOUSTON -- Scott Dixon made the opening race of the Houston Grand Prix a Penske Racing nightmare, grabbing a series-best fourth victory while slicing a huge chunk off Helio Castroneves lead in the IndyCar championship race. Dixon, who entered Saturdays race trailing Castroneves by 49 points, cut his deficit to eight points heading into Sundays race. A sweep of the doubleheader through Reliant Park would put the New Zealander in control headed into the Oct. 19 finale at Fontana, California. "I hope they are worried, man. Thats a 41-point turnaround," he said. "Hopefully, we can have another good race (Sunday). It would be nice to be in the lead going into Fontana. To have a little bit of a buffer would be really nice." It was the 33rd win of Dixons career, and one more would tie him with Al Unser Jr. for sixth on the IndyCar list. Dixon was aided by the first mechanical problem of the season for Castroneves, who had been the only driver to complete every lap this year entering the race. But a gearbox problem just 22 laps in Saturday sent him to pit road. It took nine laps before Castroneves got back on track, and he wound up 18th. "We are still leading," he said. "Its a shame. Those things are outside of our control. I wasnt sure they were going to be able to fix it and when they did, I just went out there and tried to learn the track as best I could. I changed my mode to What can I do to learn for race No. 2?" The Penske team also ran into trouble when a slow pit stop for Will Power allowed Dixon to take the lead. "It was very disappointing with not being able to keep the lead in the second half of the race," said Power, who wound up 12th because of an ill-timed yellow flag. Simona de Silvestro finished a career-best second to earn her first IndyCar podium in her 63rd start. Justin Wilson was third in his fourth podium finish of the season. "Well, finally," de Silvestro said. "Weve been waiting for this for a long time." IndyCars first race in Houston since 2007 got off to a rocky start when a bump was discovered in the first turn when they cars hit the track for the first time Friday. Because the promoter could not start building the course until after a National Football League game on Sunday, IndyCar had no access to the track and a course that usually takes several weeks to build was completed over several days. Qualifying was postponed Friday and crews used a grinder on the surface all night to try to smooth the bump down. It was still rough, though, and IndyCar decided it could only do single-file restarts for the two races. Then the race itself got off to a bizarre beginning when James Hinchcliffe stalled on IndyCars standing start. He was lined up in the third row, and cars had to dart around him to avoid a massive collision. Ed Carpenter wasnt so fortunate, however -- he ran into the back of Hinchcliffes stalled car. "It was tough to see with the other cars right in front of me. Just a tough break," Carpenter said. The race immediately went to caution with pole-sitter Takuma Sato out front until he had to pit on lap seven with a flat tire. That turned the lead over to Power with Dixon right behind him. The two have had issues in IndyCars last two races, and its been magnified because Dixon is racing Powers teammate for the championship. The race took another sudden turn when Castroneves headed to pit road on lap 22 with the gearbox problem. And it went from bad to worse for Penske moments later during green-flag pit stops. Dixon headed in before Power and his Ganassi crew got him out in 7.4 seconds. Power then made his stop as Dixon was racing around the course, trying desperately to circle the track before Power exited pit road. Dixon did it -- in part because the Penske crew needed 9.2 seconds on a troublesome stop for Power. With Dixon out front, he had control of the race and the points lead in his sight.

One year after Frenchman Johan Clarey set a World Cup speed record of 161.9 km/h here, Heel hit 148.4 kilometres per hour through the Hanneggschuss straight. Heel timed 2 minutes, 39.04 seconds on the 4.4-kilometre Lauberhorn course, the longest in the World Cup, which was softened by fresh snowfalls. Peter Fill of Italy was second, 0.30 back. Patrick Kueng of Switzerland trailed Heel by 0.45 in third. Christof Innerhofer, the Italian defending champion, placed fourth, almost 10 seconds behind his 2013 winning time. Erik Guay of Mont-Tremblant, Que., was fifth. Austrian Hannes Reichelt, who briefly held the speed record last year before Clareys run, said the course had been modified in the fastest section at the two-minute mark. "They made a little bit more turns at Hanneggschuss so there is no chance to get 160 (km/h))," said Reichelt who placed third last year.dddddddddddd Downhill standings leader Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway was 10th. "That wasnt too convincing. I actually felt better here last year when I won the trainings," said Svindal, who has never finished on a Wengen downhill podium in eight attempts. Bode Miller of the United States, the Lauberhorn winner in 2007 and 08 and runner-up the following year, was 15th fastest. Svindal and Miller both start in a super-combined event on Friday — won by the American in 2010 — that is threatened by a forecast for snow during a training run on Thursday. The slalom portion will be run first in the morning to give course workers more time to prepare the shortened downhill course in the afternoon. The 84th Lauberhorn race meeting peaks with the classic downhill on Saturday, traditionally the most popular event on Switzerlands sports calendar. A slalom on Sunday completes the program.
