B&L Transport 170 TicketsThe B&L Transport 170, also known as the Mid-Ohio 170, is one of the premier racing events in the state of Ohio. Almost 170 miles long, the race is an integral part of the NASCAR Xfinity Series — a minor league circuit for aspiring drivers and a steppingstone to the top circuit. Originally known as the Nationwide Children’s Hospital 200, the inaugural event was held in 2013. A.J. Allmendinger won the race with a time of two hours and 43 minutes over 94 laps. The race was extended by four extra laps due to a green-white-checker finish. Since the original event, both the name and format have changed several times. However, the Ohio course remains an important fixture of the event. The results of the race count toward the Xfinity Series championship at the end of the season, during which a winner is crowned through a playoff system. If you want to catch the thrilling action of NASCAR racing, don't miss this event. Get your B&L Transport 170 tickets at StubHub.
