(NEWTON, IA) - Dan Wheldon celebrated his 30th birthday in style, winning Sunday's IndyCar series race at Iowa Speedway.

Wheldon and his Ganassi Racing team gambled by not pitting during a yellow with 90 laps remaining.

Wheldon took the lead during the yellow and held off a late charge by Andretti Green racing teammates Hideki Mutoh and Marco Andretti, who finished second and third, respectively.

Points leader Scott Dixon finished fourth followed by AJ Foyt the fourth and Danica Patrick.

Wheldon plans to donate his winnings to the victims of recent flooding and tornados in Iowa.
