This weekend in the Nationwide Children's Hospital 200 at Mid-Ohio, Brian Scott and the No. 2 Avery Neely / Shore Lodge Chevrolet Camaro team will race chassis No. 144.

Scott at Mid-Ohio ... Last season, the Nationwide Series visited the 2.258-mile, 12-turn road course for the first time. Scott and his No. 2 RCR team qualified and finished in the 12th position, completing 100 percent of the laps.

Nationwide Series Leader ... Brian Scott continues to lead the Nationwide Series regulars with a 7.0 average starting position, and the most laps spent inside the top-15 (3,409, 94.3 percent). Currently fifth in the driver point standings only 45 points out of the lead, the No. 2 Shore Lodge Chevrolet team has collected three top-five and 12 top-10 finishes this season. Additionally, Scott has earned two pole positions doing so at Richmond International Raceway and Chicagoland Speedway.

Meet No. 2 Nationwide Patient Champion, Avery Neely ... Lewis, OH-native, Avery Neely discovered her Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome at her 20-week ultrasound, allowing her family the blessing of having time to plan and prepare for the journey ahead. Avery had her first of three open heart surgeries, the Hybrid, when she was just three days old. At two months old, Avery was unexpectedly readmitted to the hospital to have a stent placed in her retrograde aortic arch. At four months, Avery had the second of her three surgeries, the Comprehensive Stage II Surgery. She recovered well and returned home after 11 days - just in time to enjoy Christmas and the New Year with her family. At eight months, Avery needed to have her Pulmonary Arteries ballooned in the cath lab due to their small size. At 10 months old, Avery needed a stent placed in her aortic arch. In January 2014, almost two years post her last cardiac procedure, Avery went back to the cath lab for her pre-Fontan Cath. Avery had her third surgery, the Fontan just six weeks ago on July 9. Avery's family credits her with teaching them to love and persevere like they never knew possible. They love to show off her bright eyes, infectious smile and bubbly personality. Though Avery may only have half a heart, she has a personality that is larger than life to make up for it.

Circus, Circus ... In honor of Nationwide Children's Hospital Patient Champion, Avery Neely, the No. 2 Chevrolet Camaro will adorn a unique pink and purple Shore Lodge paint scheme with circus animals to honor Avery's dream of being a horse in the circus.

What are your points? ... Brian Scott and his No. 2 RCR Chevrolet Camaro team enter Mid-Ohio fifth in the Nationwide Series driver point standings.

Meet Brian Scott ... Scott is scheduled to participate in the Nationwide Series autograph session on Friday, August 15 beginning at 5:30 p.m. ET.

Rearview Mirror ...Brian Scott and the No. 2 Shore Lodge Chevrolet Camaro qualified for the Zippo 200 at The Glen in the seventh position at Watkins Glen International. This 82-lap race was a game of strategy from the initial-green flag. The Boise, Idaho, native picked up 12 positions in the final 20 laps crossing the finish line in the 10th position.

Talk about pairing with Nationwide Children's Hospital this weekend at Mid-Ohio?
"I'm really looking forward to getting to Mid-Ohio. We have paired with Nationwide Children's Hospital and have a patient champion who designed our Shore Lodge Camaro for this weekend. We have a special paint scheme designed by a special girl named Avery Neely who will be along with us for the weekend. It's going to bring something different to this team. We are really proud of the car she designed and excited to be able to help support the Nationwide Children's Hospital and have Avery on board with us. Hopefully it gives us extra motivation to have a good weekend."

How technically challenging is Mid-Ohio?
"Mid-Ohio is a very technical track. It's narrow, it's not as wide as some of the road courses we go to like Watkins Glen. It's an older asphalt, its kind of slippery and really heat sensitive. Nobody really has a lot of experience there. We went there for the first time last year in the Nationwide Series. We had a good finish there, so I feel like it's a place I understand and we are capable of having a good run. There isn't enough history there in our series to know this is generally what happens ,or this is what you can expect. You don't know if you're going to have long runs or short runs because we've only been there once."
