Hinchcliffe wins at Iowa

Updated:
NEWTON, Iowa -

James Hinchcliffe cruised to victory in the IndyCar Series race in Iowa on Sunday, leading all but 24 of 250 laps. He won for the third time this season and gave Andretti Autosport its fourth consecutive victory at Iowa's oval.

Ryan Hunter-Reay, Hinchcliffe's teammate, was second followed by Tony Kanaan, Ed Carpenter and Graham Rahal.

Hinchcliffe took the lead on the opening lap and ceded control only briefly during pit stops. He joins Kanaan, Marco Andretti and Hunter-Reay as Iowa winners for Andretti Autosport since 2010.

Hinchcliffe is also the first three-time winner in the series this season. He won the opener in St. Petersburg, Fla., and was also first in Sao Paulo.

Series points leader Helio Castroneves was eighth.
