This weekend, the NASCAR Nationwide Series heads to the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington for Saturday's Nationwide Children's Hospital 200. It'll be the third and final road course race of the year for the circuit and the second race in a row on a road course. But before we look ahead to Saturday's race, here's a look back at last weekend's road course event at Watkins Glen (be sure to check out the slideshow, above and the video, below).
Penske Racing claimed a one-two finish, with Brad Keselowski claiming his fourth-consecutive win in his last four series starts and teammate Sam Hornish Jr. finishing second.
"We had three really fast Penske cars today," Keselowski said.
Joey Logano was in a third Penske Racing entry and was running third to his two teammates late in the race, running a strategy that involved gambling on fuel mileage. The gamble didn't pay off, though, as Logano ran out of fuel with two laps remaining and wound up 21st.
That left his two teammates to battle for the win.
"I was overdriving the crap out of the car, trying to force Brad to make a mistake," Hornish said.
According to Keselowski, he wasn't perfect, but he was able to avoid catastrophic mistakes that would cost him the lead.
"I made a couple of little mistakes," Keselowski said. "I thought he was going to get me, to be honest. Just tried not to make any big ones."
Brian Vickers and Regan Smith finished third and fourth, while Elliott Sadler rounded out the top-five. Sixth through 10th were Kligerman, Justin Allgaier, Cole Whitt, Nelson Piquet Jr. and Trevor Bayne.
Series points leader Austin Dillon maintained his lead atop the standings with a 12th-place finish after a fuel pickup issue, but Hornish was able to close, pulling within three points of Dillon.
"When we'd get to about nine gallons of fuel, it would just stop running," Dillon said. "We're lucky to get out of here with that."
