LEXINGTON, Ohio (AP) - NASCAR Nationwide Series races can be treacherous, with large cars competing for tight space in the corners.
Now imagine putting 40-some of those speedy tanks on a twisty road course with 13 turns over 2.25 miles of a narrow ribbon of pavement.
No wonder almost everyone is expecting lots of rumpled fenders and crumpled trackside fences when the series races for the first time at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in the inaugural Nationwide Children's Hospital 200 on Saturday.
All of the top drivers - Austin Dillon, Sam Hornish Jr., Regan Smith, Elliott Sadler and Brian Vickers make up the top five in the standings - anticipate a wild day of racing in the 90-lap, 203-mile event contested over the rolling hills midway between Cleveland and Columbus.
