Allgaier sputters to Nationwide win

JOLIET, Ill. — Justin Allgaier passed Carl Edwards on the final lap to win the Nationwide series STP 300 as both cars ran out of fuel Saturday night at Chicagoland Speedway.

Edwards led most of the night, but Allgaier sped past coming into the third turn, and Edwards couldn't respond because he was out of fuel.

Seconds later so was Allgaier, who coasted to the finish line to win at his home track with Edwards second. Tampa's Aric Almirola finished fourth.

BOWYER'S HOME JOY: Clint Bowyer put behind him runnerup finishes in NASCAR Nationwide and Sprint Cup races at his home track with a dominant win in the O'Reilly Auto Parts 250 truck race at Kansas Speedway.

"We've gotten close here and had good runs here, but we've just never been able to seal the deal," Bowyer said. "It was fun to be able to do a burnout on that front straightaway in front of that crowd. This is big, man."

Bowyer, of Emporia, Kan., led 124 of 167 laps en route to the first win by a Kansas native at the decade-old 1.5-mile tri-oval.

Meanwhile, NASCAR was investigating a post-race physical altercation involving team owner Richard Childress and driver Kyle Busch in the garage.

The Charlotte Observer reported that Childress, 65, approached Busch, 26, and struck him with his fist. Busch and Childress driver Joey Coulter bumped on the final lap while fighting for fifth. Coulter beat him, and Busch finished sixth.

Officials with Busch and Richard Childress Racing declined comment.

GRAND-AM: Ricky Taylor and Max Angelelli earned their second Rolex Series victory in six days, winning the Six Hours of the Glen at Watkins Glen, N.Y., in a Chevrolet/Dallara.

NHRA: Cruz Pedregon (Funny Car), Del Worsham (Top Fuel), Jason Line (Pro Stock) and Eddie Krawiec (Pro Stock Motorcycle) led their classes in qualifying for today's Supernationals in Englishtown, N.J.
