IndyCar driver Scott Dixon, retired driver Dario Franchitti robbed at Taco Bell

IndyCar driver and Indy 500 pole winner Scott Dixon was robbed while getting dinner with his wife and former IndyCar driver Dario Franchitti at a Taco Bell in Indianapolis on Sunday, according to an Indianapolis police report.

The three were sitting in the drive-thru of the restaurant when two young men approached their vehicle with guns drawn. Dixon's team, Chip Ganassi Racing, released a statement saying the two drivers and Dixon's wife are "completely fine."

"Thank you to everyone for all of your concerns about their well-being," the statement read. "However, we will allow the Speedway/Indianapolis police departments to handle the situation and while they conduct their investigation we will refrain from making any further comments to allow Scott to focus on the upcoming Indianapolis 500."

The two, ages 14 and 15, were arrested with the 15-year-old also being charged with resisting arrest, according to the report. They took credit cards in addition to personal identification.

Dixon won the pole Sunday by posting a four-lap average speed of 232.164 mph. It is the third time he has earned pole for IndyCar's biggest race. The Indy500 is set for 1p.m. E.T. Sunday.
