Dixon Leads Honda IndyCar Qualifying at Mid-Ohio

Scott Dixon led the Honda-powered field Saturday at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, qualifying third for Sunday's Honda Indy 200 in his Target Chip Ganassi Racing Dallara-Honda. All three Chip Ganassi Racing teammates made it through the first two rounds of "knockout" qualifying to take part in the "Fast Six" final shootout, with Charlie Kimball qualifying fifth – a career best for him at Mid-Ohio – and Dario Franchitti, winner of the 2011 race here, rounding out the top six.

Honda-powered second-round qualifiers included Dale Coyne Racing's Justin Wilson, who just missed out on advancing to the final round when a last-lap flyer from Marco Andretti pushed him down to seventh; and Simon Pagenaud, who will start eighth for Schmidt Hamilton HP Mptorsports. James Jakes will start 10th for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing, his best start at Mid-Ohio, with Tristan Vautier heading the rookie contingent in 11th for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports.

Sunday's 90-lap Honda Indy 200, the 14th round in the 2013 IZOD IndyCar Series, starts at 3:30 p.m. EDT, with live television coverage on the NBC Sports Network.

Scott Dixon (#9 Target Chip Ganassi Racing Honda Dallara) qualified 3rd, won in 2009 after starting 3rd, won in 2012 after starting 5th:
"Qualifying was a lot tougher than I expected. Even getting through Q1 [the first round of qualifying] was difficult. We had to make some 'on the spot' changes [chassis adjustments] just to get through to Q3 [the third and final qualifying round]. But it’s a good starting spot for us. I've won from the second row of the grid twice before, and we’re in good shape for the race tomorrow.”
