The Indy Cars are coming back to the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington with the Honda Indy 200 of Mid-Ohio this weekend.  This year will mark the first time since the series return in 2007 that Indy Car will be a stand alone event. 

Scott Dixon has won the event three times over the last six years winning in 2007, '11 and '12.  Last season, Dixon was able to win the race by getting out of the pits after a tire change faster than leader Will Power with 28 laps to go.  Current points leader Helio Castroneves has won the event twice, but that came during the CART era in 2000 and 2001.  Testing will be on Wednesday, qualifying on Saturday at 2pm with the race set for 3:40pm on Sunday.  The race will be 90 laps around the 2.4 mile road course.
