From the pre-race drivers meeting, touring the garages and even sitting in the pit boxes, it is an action-packed day! The NASCAR drivers, their teams, NASCAR, Mid-Ohio and Nationwide are organizing a very special day for some very special kids, our NCH 200 Patient Champions!
Come to the race and enjoy the sights and sounds of NASCAR racing. In addition to meeting our NCH 200 Patient Champions, come check out the paint schemes on some of the NASCAR Nationwide Series cars that the kids helped design.
