NEWTON - The Iowa Speedway got perfect weather and Sam Hornish Jr dominated the 'Get to Know Newton 250' en-route to his 3rd career Nationwide series win on Sunday.

Hornish battled Ryan Blaney the entire day, but in the end Hornish had the better car.  Reagan Smith finished 3rd, Chase Elliott 4th.  Cedar Rapids native Landon Cassill was 10th

Under new ownership the Iowa Speedway is hoping to make a trip to Newton more family friendly, so far the reviews are good.  This was the first of 3 big racing weekends at the Iowa Speedway, the next comes July 11-12.
