Hinchcliffe makes it 4 in a row for Andretti at Newton

James Hinchcliffe put on a dominating performance in winning the Iowa Corn Indy 250 race Sunday in Newton.

Hinchcliffe led a total of 226 laps out of 250.

It marked the fourth year in a row that an Andretti Autosport driver had pulled into victory lane at the Iowa Speedway.

The others were Ryan Hunter-Reay in 2012, Marco Andretti in 2011 and Tony Kanaan in 2010.

Dario Franchitti’s win of the Iowa Corn Indy 250 in 2007 makes it five wins in seven years for the Andretti team.

Only three other drivers even led a lap in the race.

Justin Wilson took his No. 10 car to the front to lead when drivers were cycling through pit stops. Wilson led a total of four laps.

Graham Rahal led one lap and Ed Carpenter, the only driver/owner left in the IndyCar Series led laps196 through 213.

The fans in the stands had quite a few green flag laps as only 29 were run under caution. The caution flag dropped just three times and once was for debris on the track.

With 30 laps left in the race the top five were Hinchcliffe, Hunter-Reay, Graham Rahal, Tony Kanaan and Simon Pagenaud.

There weren’t many changes the final 30 go-rounds. Hinchcliffe held on for the win with Hunter-Reay, his teammate running second.

Kannan moved up one spot in the final 30 circuits to finish third for his fourth straight podium finish at the event.

Carpenter made a late pass of Graham Rahal for fourth with Rahal settling for fifth.

The rest of the top 10 had Pagenaud in sixth, Oriol Servia in seventh followed by Helio Castroneves in his Penske No. 3 car in eighth.

Finishing ninth was Marco Andretti with E.J. Viso in tenth.

Castroneves leaves the Iowa track with the 2013 IndyCar season point lead by a slim nine points over Hunter-Reay, who won the points championship in 2012.
