LEXINGTON — As the laps dwindled, Chris Buescher's anxiety rose.

The 21-year-old rookie was leading the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course — gunning for his first victory — but was running out of fuel.

"I was really focusing on taking deep breaths at that point," Buescher recalled about the final laps before he hung on to capture the Nationwide Children's Hospital 200 on Saturday for his first victory. "I found myself on every straightaway just telling myself to relax a little bit."

BEREA — Johnny Manziel, so full of swagger and cool, understands his limitations. He's only a rookie.

And as the celebrity quarterback prepares for Cleveland's exhibition on Monday night in Washington, a game that could decide whether he or Brian Hoyer starts the season opener at Pittsburgh on Sept. 7, Manziel acknowledged he's still got a lot to learn.

"I don't think I'm ready for Pittsburgh right now," he said.

SPENCERVILLE — Spencerville showed a balanced attack in its first live pre-season scrimmage, getting three touchdown passes in tying Shawnee 18-18 on a brilliant Friday morning at Spencerville’s Charles Moeller Memorial Stadium.

“We always like to scrimmage Shawnee. They are usually bigger and faster than we are, so it’s a good challenge for us to get ready for the regular season,” Bearcat coach John Zerbe said. “I was very happy with how hard we played and how enthusiastic we were from start to finish. That’s what you really like to see in the first scrimmage; coming out mentally and physically prepared to play an opponent. If you aren’t doing that, nothing else really matters.”
