Brad Keselowski wins Nationwide Sta-Green 200

LOUDON, N.H. — Brad Keselowski had a couple of impressive performances at New Hampshire. It's the victory celebration that again gave him fits.

Keselowski topped all the fields Saturday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, including a dominant run in his Nationwide series Sta-Green 200 victory. Keselowski also led the speed charts during both Sprint Cup practices. Throw in the pole for the Nationwide race and that made the Team Penske driver a neat 4-for-4.

"Well, a (great) Saturday," Keselowski said.

His only hiccup came when he dropped the American flag out of his No. 22 Ford after the Nationwide race. The flag was retrieved by an official to let the victory celebration continue. "It was really windy, and my hand's been sore," Keselowski said. "I took my hand off the flag for the second, and the wind ripped it out. It wasn't one of my prouder moments."

During his Victory Lane celebration after the Sprint Cup Quaker State 400 on June 28 at Kentucky, he tried to open a bottle of champagne by hitting it against a podium. The bottle broke and cut his hand.

Keselowski led 153 of the 200 laps in his second Nationwide win of the season. He hasn't finished worse than third in six races this season.

indycar: Ryan Hunter-Reay blew past the field with two laps to go and won the Iowa Corn Indy 300 at Iowa Speedway in Newton for his first victory since the Indianapolis 500. It was the fifth straight win in Iowa for Andretti Autosport and the second in three years for Hunter-Reay, who hadn't led a lap since Indianapolis. Josef Newgarden was second. Helio Castroneves finished eighth, taking sole possession of the series points lead.
