Iowa: Heat race results

Helio Castroneves won pole position for this weekend's IZOD IndyCar Series event at Iowa Speedway after dominating his qualifying heat race on Saturday evening.
Helio Castroneves was impossible to stop on Saturday, converting his earlier track record-setting blistering pace in the heats qualifying session to a dominating performance in Heat 3 to win him provisional pole on the grid for Sunday's Iowa Corn Indy 250 presented by DEKALB at Iowa Speedway.

Earlier, Scott Dixon and Takuma Sato emerged one and two in the largely processional Heat 1, which allowed them to take part in the 'pole shootout' third heat as reward. Dixon's success was in stark contrast to his team mate Dario Franchitti who finished a lap off the leaders and gets a grid position near the back for the main race as a result.

In a rather more entertaining Heat 2, Graham Rahal emerged victorious after being made to work for it, coming through the field in thrilling fashion to take the lead from Ed Carpenter with four laps to go, with both men progressing to the pole shootout heat as reward when the race ended prematurely for James Jakes hitting the wall on lap 48.
