The NTT IndyCar Series will return Sunday to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for the back half of a race weekend doubleheader that usually has brought good times to Scott Dixon.
The points leader has a series-high six victories at the track. On Saturday, the five-time series champion started an uncharacteristic 17th but still rallied for 10th in the 75-lap race, which was won by Will Power.
With four races remaining in the season, Dixon still has a solid 76-point edge on Saturday runner-up Josef Newgarden in the championship standings.
