Andretti Autosport's Nico Jamin scored his third victory of the season in today's Cooper Tires Indy Lights Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio. Yesterday's winner Santi Urrutia came home second 0.5026s behind Jamin, with Shelby Blackstock finishing third, making it two Belardi Auto Racing cars on the podium.

One of the more notable performances of the race came from Colton Herta in the No. 98 Andretti Steinbrenner Racing machine. The son of former IndyCar driver and current team owner Bryan Herta, started from pole before surrendering the lead to Jamin in turn 3 after spinning in turn 8. Despite falling back to 12th in the running order and being more than 20 seconds behind the 11th-place car, Herta was able to drive back to finish sixth.

Next up for Indy Lights will be the Illinois 100 at Gateway Motorsports Park on August 27th.
