Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon who goes into this weekend’s Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio leading the Verizon IndyCar Series championship by 62 points believes that if the team can get everything right they will be in with a chance of winning on Sunday following a successful test here last week.
Speaking ahead of the race this weekend, the Iceman said:
“Mid-Ohio is just one of those tracks where we have a feeling that if we get things right with the PNC Bank car, we always have a decent shot at winning. The track has been very special to not only myself, but to the team over the years. It’s one of those rhythm tracks where if you get in a good groove, then things just take off if everything is working right. You can come from about anywhere to win here as we’ve seen in the past, but it’s a lot easier when you do it from the front, so a good qualifying run is always important on this style of track.
Ed Jones in the No.10 NTT DATA Honda is looking forward to this weekend saying:
“I’m looking forward to the race weekend at Mid-Ohio. We tested there last week for a full day, so it definitely raises the level of comfort you have when you return. Since the test was just last week, it really helps overall because we were just there and everything is top of mind this week. Mid-Ohio is a very difficult track. Qualifying is extremely important here and is one of the biggest keys to having a great race. We’ll spend a lot of time focused on qualifying and getting into the Firestone Fast Six. I think if we can do that, then we’ll have a good day in the No. 10 DC Solar Honda on Sunday.”
