Power powers way to pole at Mid-Ohio IndyCar
Question of the Day
Pagenaud will go from the best starting position he’s had in IndyCar this season.
“I’m really, really happy with the car. Tomorrow should be an exciting day,” he said. “Hopefully the weather stays nice. If it rains, then rain hard.”
Thunderstorms are predicted to hit throughout the day on Sunday. Inclement weather can be a wild card, giving everyone a chance instead of just the fastest cars and drivers.
“We’re looking forward to tomorrow,” said Scott Dixon, who qualified fifth but moved up a spot when Alex Tagliani was dropped 10 spots on the grid for an unapproved engine change. “It could be kind of crazy with the weather.”
Of course, Dixon looks at almost everything that happens at Mid-Ohio as a benefit. After all, he has won three of the last five IndyCar races on the track.
Ryan Briscoe, who will start fifth, said the weather can create a lot of problems on a tight road course.
“Certainly around this place, you want to be concentrating pretty hard to keep her on the road,” he said.
Series points leader Ryan Hunter-Reay qualified eighth. Helio Castroneves, winner of the last IndyCar race two weeks ago in Edmonton, also was dropped 10 spots for making an engine change and will start 23rd.
Power will be going for his fourth win of the season _ but first since winning three in a row in April. After that hot streak, he’s had four finishes outside the top 10 and his best has been a third-place. He finds himself third in the driver standings behind Hunter-Reay and Castroneves.
“We’ve been doing everything we can to see if we can get (that turned around),” he said.
