LEXINGTON, OHIO (AP) - Sam Hornish Jr. got emotional when discussing the Nationwide Series’ debut at Mid-Ohio in the first Nationwide Children’s Hospital 200.

Hornish, who comes from roughly 2 hours away to the northwest in Defiance, Ohio, didn’t previously know about the hospital’s work with seriously sick, burned, ill and injured kids until he became involved in the race. Active in his own charity, Hornish said the good work of the people at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus really touched home with him because, as he put it, “I’m a father of two daughters, with another (child) on the way.”

Asked later if he was officially revealing his wife’s pregnancy, he laughed and said, “We’ve told a few people. We didn’t exactly issue a news release.”

Officially or unofficially, the Hornishes are expecting in February.
