Stenhouse wins bizarre U.S. Cellular 250

Posted:
NEWTON (KWWL) -

Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. owns the Iowa Speedway.  Just months after picking up his first career Nationwide victory at the track, Stenhouse completed the sweep winning the U.S. Cellular 250.  The win, however, was anything but conventional.

Stenhouse entered the final lap with a commanding lead over teammate Carl Edwards.  However, the number 6 car blew it's engine coming out of turn 4.  Edwards, unable to maneuver past, slammed into Stenhouse pushing him across the line for the victory.  The final margin between the two was clocked at 0.066 seconds.

Des Moines native, and former Waterloo Black Hawk, Michael Annett finished 12th in the race.
