The Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course was the stage for one of the best races of the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series season, and the best Indy car race at Mid-Ohio that this lifelong fan can remember.

Power to Lead Battling Field to Green at Mid-Ohio

This is the fifth time I have sat down to write a qualifying results post about Will Power winning the Verizon P1 Award in 2017.
