LEXINGTON, Ohio (AP) -- AJ Allmendinger led 73 of the 94 laps and survived a late challenge after a restart to win the inaugural Nationwide Children's Hospital 200 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
Allmendinger improved his record to 2 for 2 this year in the Nationwide Series, adding a victory to the one he picked up for Penske Racing in his only previous start at Road America.
The 31-year-old Allmendinger, rebounding after being suspended a year ago for failing a random drug test, took the lead for good on the 64th lap, then had to weather a late sprint when a car spun out just before his final lap on the twisting road course.
Pole-winner Michael McDowell was second, with native Ohioan Sam Hornish Jr. third, Max Papis fourth and Brian Vickers fifth.
