We combined our fundraising and awareness efforts to create the Nationwide Children’s Hospital 200. The three-year partnership brings the NASCAR Nationwide Series to Ohio for the very first time. Nationwide Children's Hospital is the title sponsor of the race, which is contested over 88 laps for a distance of 200 miles with proceeds benefiting Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
The inaugural Nationwide Children’s Hospital 200 was August 16-17, 2013, at the Mid-Ohio Sport Car Course. The track has been called the most competitive course in the U.S. and features a permanent road-racing circuit with two primary configurations: a 2.4-mile, 15 turn, and a 2.25-mile, 13-turn circuit. The park-like, 330-acre complex is located in Lexington, Ohio, 60 miles north of Columbus and 75 miles south of Cleveland.
Since 2008, Nationwide Insurance® has been the title sponsor of the NASCAR Nationwide Series and has been involved in the sport for more than 14 years. The NCH 200 is part of our effort to raise awareness and more than $3 million for Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
