LEXINGTON, OHIO – The return of both the NASCAR Nationwide Series for the Nationwide Children’s Hospital 200 on August 15-16 and the IndyCar Series for The Honda Indy 200 on August 1-3 are the focal points of a five event 2014 Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course schedule. VIP Race Passes and tickets for all 2014 events go on sale Monday, December 2 at midohio.com or by calling 800-MID-OHIO (643-6446).
The track’s two largest events remain on their familiar August weekends, making for another huge month of racing in the Buckeye state. AJ Allmendinger won last year’s inaugural NASCAR Nationwide Series event and Charlie Kimball won his first-ever IndyCar Series race while leading a Honda podium sweep.
July at Mid-Ohio continues to be a haven for motorcycle fans with the two big bike events returning to traditional dates. AMA Pro Racing is back at Mid-Ohio for the 32nd time on July 12-13 during the Buckeye SuperBike Weekend presented by Dunlop Tire and AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days follows the next weekend on July 18-20. Kicking off the 2014 season on June 27-29 is the popular SVRA event, the Mechanics Bank Vintage Grand Prix. Leading the car shows will be a wonderful collection of Minis, which is this year’s Featured Marque.
“We’re proud to once again provide a schedule with a great mix of diverse racing for all of our fans,” said Craig Rust, president of Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
