Fifth Gear: Five Takeaways from Mid-Ohio Race

The Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio Presented by the HPD Ridgeline had the looks of a typical Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course race, but it was so much more than that. Only twice in the previous 37 INDYCAR SERIES races had the winner started outside the top 10, and only five other times had the winner started outside the top five. To win an NTT INDYCAR SERIES championship, drivers must win races and race up front each and every week. From there, he stayed in that section of the field for the remainder of the race, working his way up to eighth at the finish of the 80-lap race. A driver of O’Ward’s caliber surely isn’t happy with an eighth-place finish after having won twice this season already, but this was one of those races drivers consider a good points day. The NTT INDYCAR SERIES is setting up for a thrilling run to the finish in one month’s time.
