After a DNF in Race 1 at the Streets of St. Petersburg, Wagner and the Spark Performance team were aiming to get back on consistent form at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. A fourth place in Race 1, followed by a second place finish in Race 2, achieved that goal and helped recover from the points lost at the previous event. Wagner now sits second in the championship (-40 points) heading into the MX-5 Cup summer break.
At the rescheduled IndyCar event at Mid-Ohio on September 12, Gresham Wagner dominated race 1 of the MX-5 Cup series. After leading both official practice sessions and capturing poles for the pair of races on the day, Wagner led all 28 laps of the first race to earn his maiden win by a 1 second margin. Wagner and Michael Carter created a gap to the rest of the field throughout the race, and led 3rd across the line by over 10 seconds.
