Carl Edwards Wins At Nashville After Rebounding From A Speeding Penalty
Carl Edwards won the Federated Auto Parts 300 from Nashville Superspeedway after rebounding from an early pit road speeding penalty. He led over 109 laps throughout the race and dominated the last half of the event en route to his fifth Nationwide Series win of the season.
Brad Keselowski seemed to have the only car that was on par with Edwards throughout the early part of the race, but his chances of victory were ended when he dropped a cylinder. He managed to limp home to a twelfth place finish, but it was certainly not the night he was looking for.
Austin Dillon, the winner of Friday night's Camping World Truck Series race finished third and led nine laps. He tried to do the two-tire strategy that helped him win on Friday, but it dropped him from first to third during the last run of the race.
Elliot Sadler was the points leader entering the race, but he broke the drive shaft on the last pit stop of the race. His misfortune caused him to drop to third in the points standings. He now trails new points leader Reed Sorenson by fourteen points. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. now sits second in the points standings. He trails Sorenson by a margin of five points.
