England's Max Chilton won the Indy Lights race Saturday at the Iowa Speedway after dedicating the race to former teammate Jules Bianchi, the French Formula One driver died early Saturday from injuries sustained in October in the Japanese Grand Prix.

Bianchi and Chilton were teammates at Marussia in 2014, and Chilton said he was racing for Bianchi after winning the pole.

Chilton then dominated the 100-lap race on Iowa's 0.894-mile oval, leading 87 laps even though he says he was thinking of Bianchi every "5 or 10 laps."

Ed Jones was second, followed by RC Enerson.
