Driving Force for Nationwide Children's Hospital

Nationwide Children’s Hospital is title sponsor of the race with proceeds benefiting the hospital.

NASCAR Nationwide Series race salutes brave kids

The race will feature the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Patient Champion Program, which honors and celebrates the hospital’s brave young patients.

In a show of support, Nationwide Series teams, drivers and sponsors have donated portions of their race car’s paint schemes to feature designs by each of the children. Ten Patient Champions have been paired with these teams/drivers and given the opportunity to contribute to car design elements.

Kids earn VIP status

In addition to this on-car presence, the children’s names and paired team numbers will be featured in large grass logos around the Mid-Ohio racecourse.

And on race day, they’ll become honorary members of their respective teams and treated as VIPs.
