INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana (AP) – The whole plan had been to celebrate Scott Dixon’s pole-winning run for the Indianapolis 500 at a downtown Italian restaurant. But the restaurant was closed by the time Dixon had completed his media obligations Sunday night.

“Really only the next choice was to get fast food,” Dixon told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Tuesday.

So Dixon and friend Dario Franchitti headed to Taco Bell. Just a mile down the road from hallowed Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the two were robbed at gunpoint while waiting in the drive-thru lane.

“It was definitely shocking, disbelief for the most part,” said Dixon, who acknowledged the “bizarre contrast” of being robbed a few hours after the high of winning the pole for the fabled race coming up this Sunday.

“It will make you feel really small again,” Dixon said.
