The Honda Indy 200 is officially in the books and the winner has made history. Scott Dixon was on an absolute mission the entire weekend. He was fastest in practice, dominated qualifying, and went on to own the track on race day. After some questionable contact between Dario and Will power on the first lap Dario was able to hold on and take second place which increased his points lead over Power. Ryan Hunter-Reay was able to hold onto first place despite fighting fatigue due to Mid-Ohio’s very physical configuration. To make matters worse for Ryan, his drink tube was broken! Get that man a Gatorade! In other track hi-jinks Danica Patrick made herself the most hated woman in Ohio by taking out hometown hero Graham Rahal in a “racing incident” after which Graham’s team had to talk him out of taking revenge on the tiny terror. I’ll bet he is glad that Danica is going to NASCAR next year.
Next up on the schedule is the MoveThatBlock.com Indy 225 at the New Hampshire Motorspeedway oval. This is the first time Indy Car has been back in NH in 10 years. Will the drivers take to it like any other oval? Or will they be thrown off but nuances at the track that they aren’t used to? We’ll find out a week from now!
