Ryan Blaney Wins The Iowa Corn 350

Ryan Blaney led 201 laps to win the Iowa Corn 350. It was the first NASCAR Cup Series race at the Iowa Speedway and Blaney took the checkered flag in front of more than 80 family members. His mother is a native of Chariton and his father, Dave, won the Knoxville Nationals in 1997. It was Blaney’s third win at the Iowa Speedway.

Blaney’s entire family celebrated with him in victory lane.

Blaney felt the track offered an entertaining style of racing.

Back-to-back sellout crowds helped make the event a success. William Byron finished second to Blaney.

Many of the drivers were concerned about a recent repaving in both sets of turns and if it would make passing too difficult. Chase Elliott finished third.

Elliott hopes the Cup Series returns to Iowa.

Christopher Bell finished fourth and would like to see the entire track repaved.

After starting in the back row Ricky Stenhouse Jr. finished fifth and says the Iowa Speedway was a great host for the Cup Series.
