Carl Edwards conquered the NASCAR Nationwide Series competition at Nashville Superspeedway on Saturday night.
The Sprint Cup star was therefore overwhelming that not even a penalty, an upset stomach or fellow Sprint Cup driver Brad Keselowski can stop him.
He performed his habitual back flip off the car, after that even went into the stands later to have fun with the followers. Edwards said, who guided a race-high 125 laps and has a sum of six wins at the track, five in countrywide and one in the truck series, “It’s just to give a couple people high-fives and to see the looks on their faces.”
Ricky Stenhouse, Jr, teammate of Edwards at Roush Fenway Racing, placed second and the third was Mike Dillon.
Edwards, who leades the Sprint Cup points competition over Jimmie Johnson, was top when the first caution appeared on Lap 82 for debris. The following 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.
