The Nationwide Children's Hospital 200 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course is the 22nd race on the 2013 Nationwide Series schedule.

This will be the third and final road course race on the schedule this year. A.J. Allmendinger won at Road America, and Brad Keselowski took the checkered flag at Watkins Glen International last weekend.

Located roughly 60 miles north of Columbus, Ohio, this 2.258-mile road course opened in 1962. The IndyCar Series has been running there each year since 2007. CART and USAC races also were held at this course in the past.

Mid-Ohio was added to the Nationwide schedule after Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal had been dropped. The series competed in Montreal from 2007-12.

The next race is the Aug. 23 Food City 250 at Bristol Motor Speedway. Joey Logano won last year's event there.
