New NASCAR race in Ohio leads to traffic concerns



Published: Wed, August 14, 2013 @ 9:19 a.m.

LEXINGTON, Ohio (AP) — Officials anticipating crowds for a new NASCAR race in north-central Ohio worry about the traffic it’s expected to create in a more rural area with a notable Amish population.

The NASCAR Nationwide Children’s Hospital 200 is Saturday afternoon at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington. It’s about halfway between Cleveland and Columbus and is several miles from the major highway linking those cities.

Morrow County Sheriff Steve Brenneman tells the Mansfield News Journal many race fans will be arriving on two-lane roads. He says some motorists will be directed to a road in an area that’s home to the Amish, but that creates a safety concern because many Amish travel in horse-drawn buggies rather than cars.

The sheriff issued fliers asking the Amish to avoid that road this weekend.
