Aug 02, 2014
NEWTON, Iowa (August 2, 2014) – It’s easy to
see why Brad Keselowski would invite the challenges it takes
to jet set from Pennsylvania to Newton, Iowa, twice in just
a little more than 24 hours. Keselowski won the NASCAR Nationwide
Series U.S. Cellular 250 presented by New Holland, scoring
his third win in five tries at Iowa Speedway.
Trevor Bayne didn't win the race, but his third-place finish
did net the Roush Fenway Racing driver the final $100,000
bonus in the Nationwide Series Dash 4 Cash program. Making
his second appearance in the program, Bayne was the highest-finishing
driver among the four eligible for the Iowa Speedway bonus.
Ty Dillon (5th), Regan Smith (6th) and Brian Scott (7th)
were also eligible for the award.
Thousands of fans culminated the evening by joining the Dash
4 Cash Bash on the race track’s frontstretch following
Race fan James Dennis from Henry, Illinois collected a $100,000
bonus for being paired with Bayne for the program's final
race of the 2014 season. In the fourth and final round of
competition, four NASCAR Nationwide Series championship contenders
were eligible to compete for the chance to win the $100,000
NASCAR Nationwide Series championship points leader, Chase
Elliott, finished eighth. He leads Regan Smith by two points.
While, tonight’s U.S. Cellular 250 presented by New
Holland closes out the 2014 season of NASCAR racing at Iowa
Speedway, the NASCAR Nationwide Series heads to Watkins Glen
