NEWTON, Iowa (AP) - Dan Wheldon celebrated his 30th birthday by
winning the Iowa Corn Indy 250 today, his second victory of the
season. Wheldon took the lead out of a caution flag with 90 laps to
go after making the risky decision not to pit. The move paid off,
as Wheldon held off Andretti Green drivers Hideki Mutoh and Marco
Andretti down the stretch.
Wheldon plans to donate his winnings to the victims of Iowa's
recent floods and tornadoes.
