GLADEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Carl Edwards claimed his fifth career victory at Nashville Superspeedway, holding off Kyle Busch to win the Nashville 300 on Saturday.
Edwards celebrated the Nationwide Series victory with his trademark back flip and a brief trip to the edge of the grandstands to acknowledge cheering fans.
Edwards' victory kept Busch from pulling off the first double at the track. Busch had dominated in winning the Trucks Series race Friday night.
Edwards led 148 of the 225 laps Saturday and took the lead for good on lap 191, passing Busch and opening up a slight lead and weaving past a slower car on the final lap.
It was Edwards' second Nationwide victory of the season and 31st overall.
Brad Keselowski, a two-time winner in Nashville, finished third, edging pole-sitter Joey Logano in fourth, and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. in fifth.
