MINERvA is a neutrino detector in the NuMI beamline of FNAL, with a central fully active scintillator detector and targets of iron, lead, carbon, water, and LHe upstream of the central detection region. MINERvA began operations in late 2009 with a partially compete detector and has been fully operational since early 2010. Data have been taken with both neutrino and anti-neutrino beams. The objective is to measure inclusive and exclusive cross sections for neutrino-nuclear interactions with unprecedented statistics and detail off a wide range of nuclear targets. We will present preliminary results for ratios of Pb/Fe/scintillator inclusive and charged current quasi-elastic scattering kinematic distributions.
