NASCAR NATIONWIDE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL 200 - MANSFIELD
August 15-16, 2014
In 2013, a 40-car grid, a handful of Cup drivers and road course ringers along with the NNS championship contenders and furious restarts on the front straight created tension and action that rivaled any other race in Mid-Ohio history. The atmosphere matched the racing as The Ohio State Marching Band, Columbus Children's Choir and Nationwide Children's Hospital patient champions participating in pre-race. Fireworks, autograph sessions and more added to the best weekend of the summer. This year has more in store as the Nationwide Children's Hospital 200 will once again be the pinnacle of the Mid-Ohio schedule in 2014
