Indy Car teams moved into Mid-Ohio on Wednesday for testing in preparation for Sunday's Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio.  Points leader Helio Castroneves driver of the #3 car, says no matter how many times you have been on the track at Mid-Ohio you always learn something new.  Castroneves is one of five two time winners at Mid-Ohio in 2000 and '01.

Scott Dixon driver of the #9 car and second in the points standings, is one of two three time winners at the course in 2007, '11 and '12.  Dixon says he realy can't put a finger on why he has been so successful at Mid-Ohio, but he wishes he could replicate it at every track. 

For Ryan Hunter-Reay driver of the #1 car and third in the points standings, he says every driver has their own way of getting around the 2.4 mile road course with each driver having to find their strong and weak points out on the track.

For Ohioan Graham Rahal driver of the #17 car, he notes that TV ratings for this particular race have always been high and for him, because of his family and his father Bobby, who was a two time winner of the event in 1985 and '86, a win for him at Mid-Ohio which he considers his home track would be huge.

Qualifying for the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio is Saturday at 2pm, with the 90 lap race set to take the green flag at 3:40pm on Sunday.
