Carl Edwards Tames Bristol For Third Time In Career

Last year wasn’t exactly awesome for Carl Edwards, but this year, the backflip aficionado seems to have things in line inside the #99 camp. Edwards and company scored the victory in a rain delayed, wild one at Bristol on Sunday evening.

In an unforeseen circumstance with two laps to go, caution was called, but wasn’t exactly called for by NASCAR oversight. The caution lights all around the track lit up with two to go, prompting all drivers to slow to caution speed. Speculation was drawn to the rain possibly causing a short, and during that caution a sudden burst of rain came without warning, eventually leading to an official end under caution. Edwards was leading over younger drivers Aric Almirola and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. when the caution “waved”.

Other than that, the race featured some pretty awesome action, as Tony Stewart quietly got a much-needed and quality top five finish, finishing fourth. Marcos Ambrose rounded out the top five, also scoring a rare top five. Denny Hamlin, Jeff Gordon, Kasey Kahne, Brian Vickers and Kyle Larson rounded out the top ten.

The circuit goes “California Dreamin'” next week in Fontana; the superspeedway usually provides one hell of a race, so tune in next Sunday.
