IndyCar star Dixon to try skills on "American Ninja Warrior"

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Scott Dixon will be the latest IndyCar driver to enter the realm of reality TV when he auditions in Indianapolis next week for "American Ninja Warrior."

The four-time IndyCar champion, nicknamed "The Iceman," thought it sounded fun when he was approached with the idea of trying out. As the competition has drawn near, Dixon is wondering what he got himself into.

"I feel a lot of pressure on this one," Dixon said Thursday in a telephone interview. "When it got to be about a month away, I figured I should start training for it, and it's pretty hard stuff."
