Pato O’Ward expressed that his victory at the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio was a long time coming, marking his first on-track win since Iowa in 2022. Despite being credited with a win in St. Petersburg after Josef Newgarden’s disqualification, he didn’t feel satisfied as it didn’t come with a trip to victory lane. O’Ward’s masterful performance led him to victory over Alex Palou, who had initially taken the lead from pole position. O’Ward strategically cut into Palou’s lead during the race, culminating in a critical final pit stop where he surpassed Palou due to a minor delay in Palou’s pit stop. O’Ward’s victory brought an end to his 714-day winless streak in on-track victories, which he described as hard-fought and well-earned. The race also saw strong performances from Scott McLaughlin and the Andretti Global duo, Colton Herta and Marcus Ericsson, while IndyCar’s new energy recovery system showed almost flawless performance in its debut race. Additionally, Christian Rasmussen and IndyCar rookie Toby Sowery delivered impressive performances, showcasing promising talent in the series.
