NEWTON, Iowa – Brad Keselowski took control with 35 laps left to win the NASCAR Nationwide race at Iowa Speedway on Saturday night.

The Sprint Cup driver has won in his last three Nationwide starts, also topping the field at Richmond in April and Kentucky in June.

Points leader Austin Dillon led a race-high 116 laps, but gave up a huge lead following a late caution. Keselowski, the only Sprint Cup driver in the field, took control a few laps later for his second Nationwide win at Iowa.

Sam Hornish Jr. was second, followed by Brian Vickers, Dillon and Kyle Larson.

Keselowski, like every other driver in the field, spent much of the race looking at the back of Dillon’s No. 3 car. But a late caution flag changed everything.

Dillon led by as many as seven seconds — or over a quarter of the 0.875-mile track — before a blown tire by Travis Pastrana drew out the flag and allowed the field to pit with 50 laps left.

Dillon took four tires and fell back to fifth as Bayne took the lead on the restart. But Keselowski, who won the inaugural Nationwide race on Iowa’s oval in 2009, surged to the front and held off a charging Hornish for his third win of the season.

Drew Herring, in the No. 54 car for Joe Gibbs Racing normally driven by Kyle Busch, was the surprise winner of his first career pole.

Busch has won eight Nationwide races in 15 starts in 2013. But like every Sprint Cup regular except for Keselowski, he stayed in Pocono to prepare for Sunday’s race.

Herring, who was joined on the front row by Regan Smith, gave the lead away after just 27 laps. He also spun out on the 55th lap — drawing a caution to end the longest green-flag start of the season.

The flag did Keselowski no favors, as he was flagged for a tire violation during a pit stop and sent to the back for the restart. The No. 22 car also suffered through an overheating issue halfway through the race.

But Keselowski fought through all of that, posting his first career victory in a race where he was called for a pit row violation.

Ryan Gifford was ninth in his first career Nationwide start.

Bayne, who gave the No. 6 Roush-Fenway Racing car its fourth victory in five tries at Iowa in June, finished 10th.

TRUCK SERIES: Sitting in the truck, Ryan Blaney got some fatherly advice right before the green flag dropped in Long Pond, Pa.

Choose the right line on restarts.

With more than 570 NASCAR starts behind him, Dave Blaney knew what he was talking about.

Ryan Blaney pulled away on the second attempt at a green-white-checkered finish to win the Truck Series race Saturday at Pocono Raceway.

“It was pretty funny that we were talking about restarts before the race and that’s what it came down to,” Blaney said.

A third-generation driver, Blaney now has more NASCAR wins (2) than his dad. Dave Blaney is winless in 450 career Cup starts, three Truck starts and has one win (2006) in 121 Nationwide starts.

“I’ve been really lucky to have my dad at both of my Truck wins,” Blaney said. “Not a lot of guys can say that. I’ve been fortunate enough to have him here and have him give me advice along the way.”

INDY 200: Defending IndyCar Series champion Ryan Hunter-Reay knows it’s time to make inroads on points leader Helio Castroneves.

Hunter-Reay put himself in perfect position to do it this weekend at Mid-Ohio in Lexington, Ohio.

Hunter-Reay captured the pole for Sunday’s Indy 200, turning the second-fastest lap in track history to edge Will Power for the top spot.

“I remember, back in 2009, it felt like I was living from race to race,” Hunter-Reay said as he prepared to qualify for Sunday’s stop.

It will be the third time this season and the fourth time in his career that Hunter-Reay will start from the front.

Scott Dixon, who has won three straight races to move into second in the points race, will start third. Marco Andretti qualified fourth, followed by Charlie Kimball and Dario Franchitti.

Castroneves will start 15th. The Brazilian leads Dixon by 24 points and Hunter-Reay by 69 as he searches for his first series title.

BEECH RIDGE MOTOR SPEEDWAY: Alan Tardiff of Lyman won his second NASCAR Pro Series race of the season in Scarborough.

Tardiff, leading the 40-lap race going into a caution with 10 laps remaining, dove to the inside lane on the restart. Windham’s Bobby Timmons, running second, was forced to the outside in a vain attempt to pass Tardiff.

Matt Dow of Buxton won the Sport Series, Bridgton’s Jon Brill the Wildcat and Dave Cameron from Alfred the Road Runners.
