Title Contenders Go Quick At Mid-Ohio

LEXINGTON, Ohio — Three drivers badly in need of a victory who are generally battling for a championship were the three fastest drivers in Saturday morning’s 75-minute NTT IndyCar Series practice session at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Team Penske’s Will Power was second at 1:06.3952 (122.431 mph) in the No. NTT IndyCar Series points leader Scott Dixon was fourth at 1:06.4407 (122.347 mph) in the No. Dixon, the winningest Indy car driver at Mid-Ohio with six wins, leads Team Penske’s Newgarden by 96 points heading into the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio doubleheader this weekend. Should Dixon leave Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course with a lead of 141 points or more, the New Zealand driver only needs to start the remaining races on the schedule to win a sixth championship. With a lead of more than 162 points or more, he can clinch the title.
