The lineup has been set for the Mid-Ohio round of the 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series championship.
Scott Dixon is looking to get back in the title fight and so far, he's gotten the job done. He will start from pole position in tomorrow's race. Will Power will start alongside, making it a Ganassi/Penske front row.
In 1999, Dario Franchitti set the fastest lap ever at the circuit, going 1:05.347 seconds. One year later, Gil de Ferran ran the identical time. And now, 15 years after that, Dixon has blown that time out of the water with a 1:04.5814.
“It’s great that the Target car has a lot of speed, but as you saw last year with us winning from the last row that anything can happen,” said Dixon.
"We can't really race for the championship right now. We have to race for wins. It is hard with that mind-set when you get close. There are 200 and something points on the table. We've been strong all year, but we haven't got the results that we wanted. We'll see what we can do."
Sebastien Bourdais and Helio Castroneves will share the second row, ahead of Josef Newgarden and Charlie Kimball.
After winning at Iowa, Honda failed to get even a single car into the Fast Six for Mid-Ohio. Hunter-Reay was their best showing back in seventh while Graham Rahal, who comes into this race second in the standings, was 13th.
Championship leader Juan Pablo Montoya will be nearby in 10th, behind Tony Kanaan and Luca Filippi.
