“Our community has been a key to the success of Mid-Ohio for decades. Locals come out to the races as fans, compete on some of our club weekends and support our major events by volunteering,” said Craig Rust, president of Mid-Ohio. “This first NASCAR Nationwide Series race is an important one for the track and the area so we are counting on the citizens of Richland and Morrow County and other areas around us to help us execute this event.”
