Edwards Wins Kentucky Busch

Carl Edwards retook the lead on the second last lap to take the win at the Meijer 300 presented by Oreo at Kentucky Speedway

A late race pit stop for Edwards and fellow Ford driver looked to have taken them out of the battle for the win, but fresh tyres helped them move back up towards the front. A few late cautions also helped, though it meant the end of Biffle's charge as he was responsible for bringing two of them out.

A final caution saw the race restart with two laps remaining, Edwards' better tyres allowing him to take the lead at the end of the backstretch to win a race he had dominated earlier. Martin Truex Jr did a good job in the closing laps to make it as hard as he had for Edwards, both drivers helping their championsip positions.

Third was Clint Bowyer ahead of Reed Sorenson, who ran strongly all night and did almost all he could to protect his slim point lead. Paul Menard rounded out the top five.

Greg Biffle's late race crashes dropped him to a thirtieth place finish after leading earlier in the race and running second when he pitted late for tyres. It was a night full of cautions, a total of ten cautions marring the night to set a new record for Kentucky Speedway.
