LEXINGTON, Ohio – Defending Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course race winner Scott Dixon led the field in second practice for the Honda Indy 200, uncorking a 1:05.9645 at the end of the 75-minute session.

Dixon, in his usual No. 9 Target Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet, enters 48 points back of Juan Pablo Montoya and has five wins in the last eight years at Mid-Ohio.
