Mid-Ohio 200 NASCAR XFINITY Series Race to Include Team Fastrax™ Performance

The stars of the NASCAR XFINITY Series will return to Lexington, OH for the fourth annual Mid-Ohio 200 Challenge.

Saturday August 13th, the excitement will be palatable both in the air and on the asphalt, as the XFINITY drivers fight to prove themselves on the 2.4 mile track. Before the stars of the XFINITY Series start their engines and the green flag is waved, Team Fastrax™ will perform their patriotic demonstration skydive. A fan favorite, the jump will feature a 2,000-sq-ft American flag unfurled and waving in the breeze, accompanied by two of their unique red, white and blue streamers.

John Hart, owner of Start Skydiving, and member of Team Fastrax™ said, “We are honored to be performing our patriotic American Flag skydive at such a thrilling event. The XFINITY Series is a very competitive stock car racing tour, and the Mid-Ohio 200 race is no exception. It’s sure to be an exciting day.”

According to the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course website, race fans will have the opportunity to check out the best up-and-coming NASCAR drivers and enjoy a great weekend of heart-stopping road racing action. Fans will enjoy two full days of racing action with the Trans-Am Series returning to Mid-Ohio for its 50th anniversary season. For the first time at Mid-Ohio during the series' inaugural season, The Formula 4 United States Championship Powered by Honda will round out the competition.
