Rahal runs strong at Mid-Ohio.

Local favorite Graham Rahal set himself as an early pick to win the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio this morning by easily leading the morning warm-up in his Honda over the Penske Chevy of Helio Castroneves.

Marco Andretti was third quick to lead a trio of Andretti Autosport Hondas of himself, Takuma Sato and Ryan Hunter-Reay.

A rejuvenated Conor Daly was 6th to give the struggling AJ Foyt team something to cheer about.

Of course passing at Mid-Ohio is difficult so we'll see if Rahal can get past the two Penske Chevys in front of him.
