NASCAR officials released the 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series schedule Tuesday, adding a trip to Mid-Ohio for the first time in series history.

Mid-Ohio, a 2.4-mile, 15-turn road course in Lexington, marks the return of NASCAR to the state home base of sponsor, Nationwide Insurance.

“With Mid-Ohio on the schedule, the NASCAR Nationwide Series has another opportunity to lead the way at a new venue,” said Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR senior vice president of racing operations. “This gives us the opportunity to bring the series’ signature side-by-side racing to a new fan base, and build enthusiasm among race fans that have yet to experience the unparalleled experience of attending a NASCAR event.

“This is a competitive and well-balanced schedule that challenges our drivers and teams with a variety of different tracks and distances. It’s a schedule that the fans will enjoy.”

The series will have six standalone races: Iowa Speedway (June 8 and Aug. 3), Chicagoland Speedway (July 21), Kentucky Speedway (Sept. 21), Road America (June 22) and Mid-Ohio (Aug. 17).
