Scott Dixon seeks to build IndyCar lead at a favorite course

Graham Rahal a native of Ohio won in his home state in 2015

Helio Castroneves a two-time victor at Mid-Ohio in 2000 and 2001, qualified fifth in the #3 Hitachi Team Penske Chevrolet in 1:04.8485 at 125.6 miles per hour.

He led 73 of the 90 laps on the 2.258-mile (3.63 Km) course, notching his third victory of the season and sixth of his career.

Newgarden started on the front row beside pole sitter Power, but was all over his Penske teammate from the moment the green flag dropped.

Newgarden built a big lead but a safety auto with 15 laps to go closed the field up. Josef Newgarden was second at 1:04.4375 (126.150 mph) in the No. 2 PPG Automotive Refinish Team Penske Chevrolet.

Cabrera could also see time at designated hitter, should the Royals want to get Brandon Moss and his 82 OPS+ out of the lineup. Our models project Cabrera for a.291 batting average and 25 runs scored in 223 plate appearances the rest of the season.

Local favorite Graham Rahal finished third in the No. 15 Steak 'n Shake Honda for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing. "It's what we needed", Newgarden said. He holds a seven-point advantage over teammate Helio Castroneves, who finished seventh today, and is eight markers ahead of Chip Ganassi Racing's Scott Dixon, who entered the race with the points lead but surrendered it with his ninth-place finish today.

Hinchcliffe, who drives the No. 5 Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda, qualified eighth but stumbled out of the gate and dropped three spots on the opening lap. It seemed to be a wake-up call for the Russian driver.

Dixon leads the standings after 12 of 17 races. While Aleshin had an incident during practice, he kept all four wheels on the pavement during the race to finish 14th after starting dead last in 21st.

With the last race worth double points, the top six drivers are still contenders, but the opportunities are dwindling. Pagenaud is fourth in the standings with 436 points and Power is in fifth with 401 points. Rahal was the other driver to win consecutive races this season, sweeping both ends of the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear doubleheader weekend.
