Round 9: Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio. Lexington, Ohio. July 1-3.

Round 9: Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio. Lexington, Ohio. July 1-3.

The 2022 IndyCar season returns this weekend, after its three week break, with Round 9 at Mid-Ohio.

Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, was the idea of local business man Les Griebling, who convinced a number of friends from the local business community, to invest in a road course for weekend sports car racing. The
course, which followed the contours of the land, was designed by Griebling and was opened in 1962.

From 1970 to 1976, Mid-Ohio became an event on the SCCA/USAC Formula 5000 Championship calendar and from 1977 to 1980, hosted a round of the revived Can-Am series. AOWR returned when CART initially raced at Mid-Ohio in 1980, with Johnny Rutherford taking victory in the Chaparral-Cosworth DFX.

The track was bought by road racing enthusiast Jim Trueman in 1981, the owner of Red Roof Inns and Mid-Ohio underwent its first major renovation. Permanent grandstands, new pit garages with spectator balconies, a media/hospitality center, underground tunnels and a new paddock were built as well as the Goodyear Tower. CART returned in 1983 racing there until 2003.

Mid-Ohio underwent further renovation in 2006, with the whole track and pit lane being completely resurfaced and adding a 75,000 seat grandstand. In 2007, after a 3 year absence from AOWR, Mid-Ohio returned as a venue for the IndyCar series.

In March 2011, the track was purchased from Truesports by Green Savoree Racing Promotions, who promote the IndyCar street races at St Petersburg and Toronto.

More recently, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Mid-Ohio was initially rescheduled for August 9 and 10, hosting Round 7 of the then revised 2020 calendar, as well as being the season's fourth double header. It was also to be a ticketed event. However, due to concerns with social distancing the race was initially dropped, though promoters Green Savoree Racing Promotions hoped it would be reinstated at a later date.

On August 1, Ohio governor Mike DeWine decided the race could go ahead on the weekend of Sept 12 - 13, hosting Rounds 10 and 11 of the now updated revised calendar. It remained a ticketed event, though capacity was capped at 6000 for the weekend.

Some Trivia:
Driver with most wins, Scott Dixon: 2007, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2019.
Team with most wins, Chip Ganassi Racing: 1996, 1997, 1999, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2019.

Track Layout:
Mid-Ohio features two track configurations, one of 2.25 miles (3.621 km) and 13 turns, the other of 2.4 miles (3.862 kms) and 15 turns. The track runs clockwise, with the start line located on the back stretch after Turn
3 and the finish line in front of the pits. In 1963 the original sports car course was modified, as drivers were concerned it was too slow. Oak Tree Bend, which literally went around an oak tree, was removed and replaced
by the Thunder Valley section.

In 1990, there were further modifications, with the track being widened, creating the 13-turn, 2.250 mile (3.621 km) layout, adopted by CART and which is now used by IndyCar. During the 2006 renovations, new link roads were added to the track's famous Keyhole section, creating three separate road course configurations.

mstets should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Nine different teams represented in the fast 12 by my count. That isn't a statistic that I have followed but I'm guessing that it's fairly unusual. I'm not sure that it is a true indication of the pace of many in the rest of the field, as much as it indicates who was able to get clean laps late in their qualifying sessions.



What could be done to even out the conditions for qualifying? In my day the sessions were long enough that traffic was not much of a factor. I would like to see them go back to an hour long (no knock out) qualifying session and get a better representation of the fastest cars at the front of the grid. I don't think that the knock out format adds anything to the show. In the CART era there were plenty of late session fast times recorded, and I don't remember traffic being much of a factor.

Pato O'Ward grinds to a halt by the pit exit, just having made his stop. FCY. Not the race AMSP envisioned, with both cars out.

5th caution, as Grosjean and Rossi bang wheels, with Grosjean going into the tyre barrier.

Had to watch on a delay, didn't realize it was so early today. Bit just ok overall with moments that were good racing, think NBC missed a lot. Was a decent number of oh look, a pass at the corner of the screen. Good side by side with only a few stupid moments

Ok, has McLaren decided to be the Dyson of Indy racing? Seems like they alone have engine and electrical problems at this rate. Pato sounding like he wants to blame Chevy for the engine is a cheap cheap shot unless he was talking sht about McLaren. It's like Andretti trying to be cute with radio, multiple times they've missed pitting because the code words were wrong. Just say pit, no one cares enough to listen to each other's radio at a yellow. Penske and Ganassi win cause they get rid of the little stuff with consistency.

McLaughlin seemed to be the class of the race, any time he was on it he was fine and could take anything any one tried.

Good day of good tracks for all series, even NASCAR with Road America got involved so time to compare who wants to watch what with Indy and IMSA getting OTA coverage

I enjoyed the race overall but certainly not a classic. Feel really bad for Felix and Pato, through no fault of their own they missed out on what seemed like sure top fives.

One comment on the officiating though, when Kirkwood went off and they decided to wait to throw the yellow until the three cars you hadn't pitted on the previous lap had the chance to pit. At first the announcers mentioned that this was something IndyCar does to make sure everyone has a fair shot, but really it made all of the early pit stops a disadvantage and gave the folks who got in while the yellow was being called an advantage.

And WTF was going on with the andretti cars today? Why do they all hate each other? Rossi and grosjean were the worst, hit each other multiple times as well as other cars. I can't even imagine what they're going to do after the race as a team.
