Honda Indy 200 @ Mid-Ohio

It’s been a few weeks since the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio (July 26-28, 2019). The IndyCar weekend has been an annual happening with friends and family for years and years. It’s always a blast, and this year was no different. The series is better than ever. They put on one heck-of-a-show…possibly the best of the year!

My goal this year was to relax and take it all in. I didn’t bother with my camera gear, only relying on my iPhone to capture a few moments. Besides, that kept one hand free for a brew or two. Cheers!  TJ

Scott Dixon is a five-time IndyCar Series Champion and winner of the 2008 Indianapolis 500. He ranks third on the all-time wins list, trailing only A.J. Foyt and Mario Andretti…and oh, by the way, he won this year’s Mid-Ohio race in dramatic fashion…and he’s a great guy too!

Version 2

The Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course paddock offers fans a great opportunity to get up close and personal with the cars, teams, and drivers. This is the garage for rookie sensation, Santino Ferrucci. His success must be attracting new sponsors…here the crew is applying new graphics before practice.

Version 2

You never know who you’ll meet during a walk through the paddock. I had the pleasure to have a brief discussion with Jeremy Shaw (President of Team USA Scholarship, and race announcer for Radio Le Mans).

Version 2

This is “Scooter”. She’s had a full day of chasing cars. LOL!
