Lepage makes major gains at Mid-Ohio

An afternoon of solid, steady driving earned Kevin Lepage a 20th-place finish in Saturday’s Nationwide Children’s Hospital 200 Nationwide Series race at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

Lepage drove the JD Motorsports with Gary Keller No. 4 Chevrolet for the first time this season.

Lepage started 39th and rolled forward throughout the 94-lap chase, finishing a strong run on the lead lap.

“It was a good day for us with the 4 car,” said team owner Johnny Davis. “Kevin did a nice job, stayed out of trouble and brought it home clean. It was a fun day to have Gary Keller represented so prominently on the car and to have a good run with it.”

AJ Allmendinger won the race, surviving a green-white-checkered finish to outrun Michael McDowell.

The series moves on to Bristol Motor Speedway for an Aug. 23 race.
