Welcome to Mid Ohio

Greetings from Mid Ohio. As usual, the track has been busy since 8 am. The entire Road to Indy, Mazda MX5, and Stadium Super Trucks join the NTT Indycar Series this weekend.

MX5 Cup is on track now for practice.  I’m hearing that the campground is unusually full for the first day. I hope that’s a good sign for attendance.  It looks as if Sunday’s race will have the heat that Iowa’s race lost after the storm. The forecast high for race day is 90 degrees.

Today’s Indycar Schedule (All Times EDT):

Indycar Practice  1-  11;20 am

Indycar Practice 2-    3:15 pm

Both practices are on NBC Gold.

Mid Ohio is usually the weekend when some news about the next season begins trickling out. I will see what I can find out.  Back with a summary of Practice 1 sometime around 12:30.
