— 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 past three Nationwide starts.

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.

NHRA: In Kent, Wash., Top Fuel points leader Shawn Langdon shattered the Pacific Raceways record to top qualifying in the NHRA Northwest Nationals.

Coming off his season-leading fourth victory of the season last weekend in Sonoma, Langdon powered his dragster to a pass of 3.765 seconds at 320.58 mph to earn his fourth No. 1 qualifier of the season and 10th of his career. David Grubnic ran an identical 3.765 at 317.57 during the second qualifying session, but Langdon stayed in the top spot because of his faster speed.

Jack Beckman topped the Funny Car field, and Mike Edwards led Pro Stock qualifying.
