With the Honda Indy 200 of Mid-Ohio coming up a week from Sunday, Indy Car teams took advantage of their week off by testing at the track on Thursday.

Points leader Helio Castroneves (533) says all of the drivers look forward to racing at Mid-Ohio but at the same time it's the type of track that is one of the toughest on the Indy Car circuit. Teammate Will Power, second in Indy points at 520, agrees saying the track is cool but really makes a driver work.

For Ryan Hunter-Reay, third in Indy points 464, he's happy to have the time to test this week saying during a race week there really is no time at all with tight schedules. Graham Rahal, who grew up around Mid-Ohio being the son of Indy Car champ Bobby Rahal says even if you know the track it's no guarantee of success, but it's good to race in front of family and friends from the Columbus area.

The Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio is scheduled for 3:50pm on Sunday, August 3rd.
