Keselowski wins inaugural Nationwide race at Iowa Speedway

Posted:

NEWTON (AP)  Brad Keselowski passed Kyle Busch with eight laps left and held on to win the inaugural Nationwide Series race at Iowa Speedway.

Keselowski stayed on the track during a caution flag late in the race Saturday, a risk that paid off with his second victory of the year. He also won at Dover on May 30.

Busch, who started at the back after spending the morning in Pennsylvania practicing for the Sprint Cup race Sunday at Pocono, finished second after leading 84 laps. He has nine consecutive top-two finishes, tying the series record set by Jack Ingram in 1983.

Jason Leffler was third, followed by Carl Edwards and Kelly Bires.
