The facts and figures ahead of the 13th round of the 2019 NTT IndyCar Series – the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio held on the Mid-Ohio SportsCar Course.

Click here for the weekend schedule 

Track: 13-turn 2.258-mile road course near Lexington, OH

Race distance: 90 laps / 203.22 miles

Push-to-pass parameters: 200 seconds with a maximum single duration of 20sec

Firestone tires per entry: Seven sets of primaries, four sets of alternates, five sets of wets. Teams must use one set of primary and one set of alternate tires for at least two laps in the race. Firestone chief engineer Cara Adams says: "This year the primary tire compound and construction are the same as the 2019 Barber primary tire. The alternate construction is the same as the primary, while the alternate compound for all four tire positions this year is similar to what was used on just the left side alternate tires for last year’s Mid-Ohio race. We’ve gone to one alternate compound on all tire positions to make the car more balanced moving from primaries to alternates based on driver feedback.”

2018 race winner: Alexander Rossi (Andretti Autosport-Honda).
Scott Dixon is the king of Mid-Ohio with five wins, all with Chip Ganassi Racing. Emerson Fittipaldi won at Mid-Ohio three times, while Michael Andretti, Helio Castroneves, Teo Fabi, Bobby Rahal, Al Unser Jr. and Alex Zanardi all won at Mid-Ohio twice. Past winners in this weekend’s race are Dixon, Graham Rahal, Simon Pagenaud, Josef Newgarden and Rossi.

2018 pole winner: Rossi, 1min04.6802sec, 125.677mph.
Will Power and Michael Andretti have each won three pole positions at Mid-Ohio. Active Mid-Ohio pole winners this weekend include Power, Scott Dixon (x 2), Ryan Hunter-Reay, Sebastien Bourdais Pagenaud and Rossi.
