Nationwide: Stunning comeback win for Stenhouse

"I thought our day was done but Mike and the guys did a great job at repairing the right side of the car as best they could and making adjustments so that we could still run fast," said Stenhouse. "I thought we had a top five car still with all the damage. The cautions fell our way and Mike kept making great calls when we would come down pit road and we were able to get back on the lead lap.

"It put us in position where we were able to get fuel," he added. "We weren't worried about running out and that played into our favour for sure. I thought we were going to end up second and then Kyle ran out there at the end and it played right into our hand."

With so many cars ahead of him running dry at the end, Sadler was able to bounce back from his own late emergency pit stop to claim fourth place ahead of Cole Whitt and the coasting Kyle Busch. That means that Sadler retains his championship lead in the Nationwide standings, but has been trimmed back to just six points.

Full race results, plus qualifying and practice speeds and full Nationwide Series championship standings are available.
