“I’m so proud of this team and what they accomplished here today,” Bayne said reffering to the Roush-Fenway Racing Team. “Not giving up until the end. We were so far back…Could barely see the three car (Dillon).”

But they did in the end. Dillon, who was the pole-sitter for his third straight race,  had the lead for 207 of the races 250 laps, but it was the No. 6 car winning for the fourth time in five starts at Iowa. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. drove the No. 6 to victory the other three times.

The race, which was supposed to be run on Saturday night but was postponed until Sunday because of weather, had a 70-minute weather delay two-thirds of the way through the race.

Filling out the top-five, Elliot Sadler followed by Sam Hornisch Jr with Kyle Larson coming in fifth.
