The Nascar Nationwide Childrens Hospital 200 will take the green flag at 2:30pm on Saturday at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington. On Thursday, the Nationwide drivers were on track doing their best to get used to the 2.4 mile road course with it's left and yes, right turns along with the elevation changes that Mid-Ohio features. The last two Indy Car races have been caution flag free, but the cars used in the Nationwide series have more hourse power and can become very slippery.  Brian Vickers, driver of the #20 Dollar General Toyota, feels their less than a one percent chance of getting through the race on Saturday without at least one yellow flag.  It's the first year that Nascar has raced at Mid-Ohio.
