Ohio native Sam Hornish Jr. was at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington on Monday testing his Nascar Nationwide series stock car in preparation for the upcoming Nascar Nationwide Childrens 200 which will run on August 16th and 17th.  While Hornish, who hails from Defiance, Ohio has raced at Mid-Ohio in an IndyCar and says a stock reacts much different.

From where he sits in a stock car, Hornish says the track looks a little smaller than sitting in an IndyCar where if you are not familar with the track you can be right on top of turns before you are able to react.  He also says an IndyCar is much tighter, but a stock car is much looser and slides around.

The 52nd season of racing at Mid-Ohio begins with Grand-Am Road Racing the week of June 14th through the 16th, followed by the Vintage Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio on June 28th through the 30th.  The Nascar Nationwide Childrens 200 will be the first time Nascar has comes to Mid-Ohio.
