Nationwide - Iowa - Race results

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. won the John Deere Dealers 250 Nationwide Series race at Iowa, holding off strong pressure from the new All-Star champion Carl Edwards.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. had to overcome two Sprint Cup regulars and former Nationwide champions - Carl Edwards and Brad Keselowski - to claim his first ever win in the Nationwide series at Iowa Speedway.

Edwards and Keselowski had needed to hot-foot it from the All-Star event at Charlotte Motor Speedway to make it for the green flag at 2.17pm, but at least they had good starting positions (fourth and tenth respectively) after qualifying was washed out and the grid order set by owner points. That put Stenhouse Jr. in eighth place for the start.

Cautions during the 250 laps included Ryan Truex hitting the wall after a tyre problem on lap 110, a spin for Angela Cope at the restart on lap 117 and a copycat spin for her twin sister Amber a few laps later. The final caution was caused by Brian Scott who lost control of his car right in front of Stenhouse Jr.

Just before this, Edwards and Stenhouse Jr. had been battling door-to-door for the last thirty laps, and they restarted alongside each other with 22 laps to go. Edwards got the better restart, but four laps later Stenhouse Jr. surged past him for the lead and left Edwards fighting with Keselowski over second, a distraction that enabled Stenhouse Jr to eke out a half second lead that was good enough to see him to the chequered flag.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr.'s maiden Nationwide victory came after 51 starts in the series; his previous career best had been third place at Daytona in July 2010.

Next week's Nationwide race is at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Saturday at 2.30pm (local time), which it is strongly rumoured will also see the Nationwide d├ębut of former F1 world champion Kimi Raikkonen in the #87, in a collaboration between Kyle Busch Motorsports and Joe Nemechek's NEMCO Motorsports.
