NEWTON, Iowa (AP) - With most of the NASCAR world focused solely on Charlotte and Saturday night's All-Star Race, the Nationwide series has the Iowa Speedway all to itself.
As if Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. needed any more of an advantage at Iowa.
Stenhouse won both Nationwide races at Iowa's .875-mile oval in 2011, beating Brad Keselowski and Carl Edwards in May and getting shoved across the line by Edwards in August after blowing his engine just yards from the checkered flag.
Stenhouse, the Nationwide points leader, will start third in Sunday's race.
Elliott Sadler will start from the pole for the second time in three Iowa starts. Sam Hornish Jr. is second and Danica Patrick will start ninth.
