The Lilly Diabetes 250[1] is a NASCAR Nationwide Series auto race held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway since 2012. It takes place the Saturday of Kroger Super Weekend.[2][3] This race replaced the Kroger 200, which had been held at the nearby Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis, formerly known as Indianapolis Raceway Park, for the previous 30 years. Brad Keselowski's win in the inaugural event marked the last NASCAR Nationwide Series win for manufacturer Dodge after announcing they would not return to the top 3 divisions in 2013.
