Regan Smith Wins Nationwide Children's Hospital 200 in Last-Lap Pass

It came down to the last turn on the last lap when Regan Smith put a move on leader Alex Tagliani to win the Nationwide Children’s Hospital 200 on August 15, 2015.
NCH200Smith took the checkered flag at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio to earn his first NASCAR Xfinity SeriesTM win of the season. The win was extra special as Smith was driving the No. 7 Nationwide Children Hospital paint scheme featuring Patient Champion, Laynie Roll, who watched the race from the team’s pit box right on pit road. 

Race benefits hospital research 

Now in its third year, the Nationwide Children’s Hospital 200 is part of Nationwide’s effort to raise awareness and more than $4 million for Nationwide Children’s Hospital and its wide-ranging, world-class research efforts.

The NASCAR Xfinity SeriesTM race not only benefited Nationwide Children’s Hospital, it recognized 10 former and current patients and their parents in the hospital’s Patient Champion program.


Young champions treated as VIPs

Each of the 10 Patient Champions was paired with an Xfinity Series team/driver for a day. They were introduced at the pre-race drivers’ meeting, served as the race’s Grand Marshal and watched the race from a team pit box.

They had their names and their drivers’ numbers painted in the grass near several of the track’s turns. And the drivers, teams and sponsors donated portions of their race cars’ real estate to display designs inspired by the kids.

More than 50 years of caring for kids

For more than half a century, Nationwide has partnered with Nationwide Children’s Hospital to provide life-saving care to children and their families in our community and beyond.
