Nationwide: Stenhouse blows up, wrecks - and wins

Stenhouse now leads in the Nationwide points standings 11pts ahead of Reed Sorenson, after delivering Roush Fenway's 120th Nationwide victory (more than any other team) albeit in unorthodox fashion. The team's other driver, Trevor Bayne, finished in 25th place seven laps down despite leading 12 laps at the start of the race: he suffered from a loose wheel and major vibration in the later third of the race that cost multiple visits to pit road.

Sam Hornish Jr., filling in for the injured Brad Keselowski at Iowa, finished in 24th place five laps down after suffering a costly flat tyre and an overheating problem that caused a small fire on lap 153. He had been running in fourth place up till then, and had led 38 laps earlier in the race.

Other cautions in the race were for Justin Allgaier brushing the wall with a blown tyre on lap 21, Jamie Dick hitting the wall on lap 47 and collecting Eric McClure, a tyre problem for Mike Wallace on lap 99, debris on lap 184 and Blake Koch hitting the wall on lap 218 causing Robert Richardson Jr. to spin to avoid him.

Camping World Truck Series driver David Mayhew finished an impressive tenth place in his Nationwide Series d├ębut and even led for four laps.

Full race results and times from qualifying and practice available.
