Mid-Ohio - Race results

Scott Dixon cruised to victory at Mid-Ohio, while Dario Franchitti had to work hard to stay ahead of Ryan Hunter-Reay after Will Power and Ryan Briscoe suffered in the final pit stops.
Scott Dixon was "in a different zip code" as even his team mate Dario Franchitti agreed, leaving the rest of the field in his dust as he claimed his first win in the 2011 season.

Franchitti held off Ryan Hunter-Reay for second place ahead of KV Racing Technology duo Takuma Sato and Tony Kanaan.

Bad luck claimed James Hinchcliffe, Graham Rahal and Charlie Kimball, while a decision to try and stay out an extra lap severely compromised Penske duo Will Power and Ryan Briscoe and left them mired well down the field unable to pass Ana Beatriz until near the end.
