LEXINGTON, O.H. -- Chris Buescher took the lead on the 68th 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.
