LEXINGTON, Ohio (AP) - Chris Buescher took the lead on the 62nd of 90 laps and held off Regan Smith and Brian Scott to win the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on Saturday.
The victory in the Nationwide Children's Hospital 200 made the 21-year-old Buescher the third rookie to win in the series this year.
Buescher, driving the Roush Fenway Racing Ford sponsored by - fittingly - Nationwide Children's Hospital in nearby Columbus, took the lead from Brendan Gaughan and weathered a restart to hold on the rest of the way.
There were questions he could finish without running out of fuel, but he had enough to make a celebratory run the wrong way down the home straight.
