Justin Allgaier was trying to coast to a win under caution, but ran out of gas. That allowed Reed Sorenson to win instead at the NASCAR Nationwide race at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.

Allgaier took control of the lead and race from Michael McDowell on the second of three attempts at a green-white-checkered overtime finish. He contined to lead after the final restart and appeared to have won when the yellow flag waved for the final time because of several crashes.

But Allgaier ran out of gas after running so many extra laps on the 4-mile track. NASCAR rules require that the leader makes it back to the finish line eventhough the race finished under the yellow flag.

Carl Edwards was dominating the race but Justin Allgaier caught up and passed him on the final lap Saturday night to win the Nationwide STP 300 as both cars ran out of gas on Allgaier’s home track, the Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Illinois.

Allgaier was able to pass the finish line just ahead of hard-charging Trevor Bayne.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr held off the only NASCAR Sprint Cup contenders in the Nationwide Series field, Carl Edwards and Brad Keselowski, and became the first Nationwide regular to win on the circuit since Justin Allgaier won at Bristol in March 2010.

Edwards, who won the Sprint Cup All-Star race at Charlotte on Saturday night, fell behind his Roush-Fenway Racing teammate with 18 laps to go and finished second, more than four seconds behind Stenhouse.

Keselowski, who captured the inaugural Nationwide event at Iowa in 2009, finished third, followed by Reed Sorenson and Elliott Sadler.

Kenny Wallace, who joins Jason Keller as the only drivers to run 500 Nationwide races, finished sixth. Wallace’s brother Rusty designed the 7/8th mile oval track at Iowa.

It seems that Danica Patrick is making progress in NASCAR.

She finished fourth in the Nationwide Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Patrick’s finish was the best by a woman in a national NASCAR race since Sara Christian finished fifth at Pittsburgh in 1949 in the NASCAR Cup series.

Mark Martin was the winner, edging Brad Keselowski who hit the wall towards the end of the race.

Martin was to be running out of gas to get to the finish line, while Keselowski, the 2010 series champion was leading the race.

But on the final lap, Keselowski had a flat tire that sent him in to the wall as Martin drove past him for the win.

Finishing second was Justin Allgaier and Keselowski third.

NASCAR makes drivers choose title-seeking series

NASCAR’s competition committee has given out applications requiring drivers to select which series they will race for a championship for the 2011 season.

The declaration will prevent Sprint Cup drivers from racing for championships in both the Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series, and presumably fulfill NASCAR’s desire to give its second-tier series its own identity.

The NASCAR Nationwide Series was designed by to be series to develop young driving talent and a feeder for the Sprint Cup, but instead has been dominated by stars from the Cup series. The past champions have been full-time Cup drivers, with Justin Allgaier being the only non-Cup driver to win one of last season’s 35 Nationwide races.

This change will only affect Brad Keselowski and Carl Edwards. Both had planned to run the full schedule in both series.

Motor Sports experts all winter have been saying that NASCAR was going to come up with a plan like this. They’ll probably will limit the amount of Nationwide and Truck series races from Cup drivers to enter.

The only backlash from NASCAR’s decision to move forward with this new rule, is that fans who follow the Truck and Nationwide series because the tickets are cheaper, might shy away if the star Cup drivers won’t be able to drive so often.
