Edwards outclasses field to capture Nationwide race
Question of the Day
GLADEVILLE, Tenn. — Carl Edwards dominated the Nationwide Series Federated Auto Parts 300 on Saturday night at Nashville Superspeedway.
The Sprint Cup star was so overpowering that not even a penalty, an upset stomach or fellow Sprint Cup driver Brad Keselowski could stop him.
He did his customary back flip off the car and then even went into the stands afterward to celebrate with the fans. “It’s just to give a couple people high-fives and to see the looks on their faces,” said Edwards, who led a race-high 125 laps and claimed his sixth NASCAR win at the track - five in Nationwide and one in the Craftsman Truck Series. “I wish more drivers would do it.”
Edwards, who leads the Sprint Cup points race over Jimmie Johnson, was leading when the first caution came out on lap 82 for debris. The next lap he entered the pits and was penalized for speeding, and NASCAR officials ordered him to the rear of the longest line of cars for the restart.
“He knew I was loose and just started driving in on me,” said Dillon. “I don’t think he hit me, I just got real loose. That was a heck of a save. It reminded me of my dirt car.”
