The Kroger 200 is a NASCAR Nationwide Series race that takes place at O'Reilly Raceway Park.

It originally debuted as a summer night race, as the only major NASCAR event in the state of Indiana. In 1994, it was moved to the night before the Nextel Cup Brickyard 400 at the nearby Indianapolis Motor Speedway. It serves as an unofficial support race for the Brickyard 400. From 1994-2000, it was held Friday night. Since 2001, it has been held on Saturday night.

Since 1995, the race has been held as a doubleheader weekend with the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Power Stroke Diesel 200.

It has been sponsored by Kroger since its 1982 inception, the only race to keep its title sponsor for all 25 Busch Series seasons. It replaced a USAC stock car race held at the track, when that series disbanded.
