Opened in 1962 as a 15-turn, 2.4-mile circuit, the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, near Lexington, Ohio, underwent a major refurbishment in 1990, resulting in a new 13-turn, 2.258-mile track while further renovations in 2006 added connectors to its distinctive "keyhole" section to produce a third possible configuration.
The circuit hosts a number of races from internationally-recognized series, including the Honda Indy™ 200 and the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Challenge. Both races, which currently form part of the IZOD IndyCar Series and American Le Mans Series respectively, are held on the same day. Al Holbert, the three-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner, has triumphed here six times in the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Challenge while Scott Dixon has also tasted success with three Honda Indy 200 victories in 2007, 2009, and 2011.
