JOLIET, Ill. (AP) - Chase Elliott held off Trevor Bayne to win the Nationwide Series stop at Chicagoland Speedway on Saturday night.

Elliott had a strong car all day long for JR Motorsports, qualifying third and leading the most laps during the race. Bayne tried to chase him down on fresh tires in the final laps, but ran out of time.

It was Elliott's third victory of the year, following wins at Texas and Darlington.

Kyle Larson was third, followed by Kasey Kahne and Ty Dillon to round out the top five.

Brian Scott, who started on the pole, finished sixth and earned $100,000 in the second event of the four-race "Dash 4 Cash" bonus program.
