MSR Preps For Home Race At Mid-Ohio

Meyer Shank Racing (MSR) will return to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for the second time this year for the NTT IndyCar Series Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio (Sunday, NBC 3:30pm ET) looking for a big result in the team’s home race. The appearance at Mid-Ohio will be the second in IndyCar competition for MSR driver Jack Harvey in the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda.

“What Mid-Ohio means to our team doesn’t need a big introduction,” said Harvey. “It’s one of those races that we circle on the schedule every year to really do a good job at in front of Mike’s home crowd. We go into the weekend as we do any other, but there is definitely that bit of added pressure to have a good result. It’s been our goal to qualify in the top 12 and finish in the top ten and I hope that I can do that front of his friends and family. That’s what we are always looking to achieve, Mid-Ohio is just a little more special.”

With a crowd of friends, family and local sponsors planning to attend the event weekend, Shank is eager to produce results at his home track.

“It goes without saying that I love Mid-Ohio,” said Shank. “A lot of my history comes from this track so to now get the chance to race here twice in one year is really special. We are going into this weekend with the same mindset that we always do. Our crew and Jack continue to improve and we are aiming for a top ten result this weekend.”
