Dixon wins again at Mid-Ohio

Scott Dixon continued his winning streak in the IndyCar series by winning the Honda 200 at Mid-Ohio on Sunday

Dixon wins again at Mid-Ohio

Dixon took the lead for the second and final time after the final round of pit stops, moving him ahead of Helio Castroneves who led the most laps but finished the race in third position, Dixon taking his third consecutive IndyCar series win.

The driver most disappointed to see Dixon's winning streak continue was points leader Dario Franchitti, who once again had a strong finish, also moving ahead of Castroneves at the final stops, yet saw his margin over his closest challenger continue to shrink, now down to 24 points with five rounds still remaining.

Fourth and fifth were Andretti-Green teammates Tony Kanaan and Danica Patrick, a pair of drivers that did not get off to a good start despite their good starting positions.

Into the first turn of the race, Patrick slid a little wide, Kanaan hitting her right rear tyre, sending her off track, while Kanaan spun to the inside of the track.

Unfortunately, inside Kanaan was another Andretti-Green car in the shape of Marco Andretti, who tripped over Kanaan's suspension and ended up upside-down again, and out of the race only seconds after it had begun. Andretti was unharmed in the incident.

Sam Hornish Jr brought out a caution when he spun at turn one mid-race, dropping him off the lead lap and ruining any hopes of a decent finish for the Penske driver.
