LEXINGTON, Ohio – The stage is set for the 14th of 16 rounds in the Verizon IndyCar Series season, which airs LIVE starting at 1:30 p.m. ET on CNBC and NBC Sports Live Extra from the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

Scott Dixon has the pole position for today’s Honda Indy 200 after a blistering qualifying lap around the 2.258-mile road course.

You can see Dixon try to secure his third win of the season with the green flag at 2:07 p.m. ET, after the pre-race show, which begins at 1:30.

Leigh Diffey, Townsend Bell and David Hobbs will be in the booth while Jon Beekhuis, Kevin Lee, Katie Hargitt and Robin Miller will be on pit road.

Heading into today’s race, Juan Pablo Montoya leads the championship standings by 42 over Graham Rahal; just 55 points separate the top five in the championship. Dixon is third, 47 back after gaining the championship point for pole.

Montoya starts 10th and Rahal 13th, with Dixon on pole, Helio Castroneves fourth and Will Power second.

Strategy and fuel conservation typically plays a major role in the 90-lap race.

Again, that’s CNBC rather than NBCSN for the coverage for today’s IndyCar race from Mid-Ohio, starting at 1:30 p.m. ET.
