CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Matt Kenseth passed Roush Fenway Racing teammate Carl Edwards with two laps to go and hung on to win Saturday's Nationwide Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Kenseth and Edwards exchanged the lead with five laps left in the 300-mile race, but Edwards couldn't counter Kenseth's final pass on the inside.
Kenseth was filling in for Trevor Bayne, who has been sidelined with an inflammatory condition, in the No. 16 Ford.
Edwards, who was running low on fuel, hung on to finish second. Fellow Sprint Cup regular Kyle Busch was third, failing to tie Mark Martin (49) for the most wins in the Nationwide Series.
It was a rough Nationwide debut for former Formula One champion Kimi Raikkonen, who finished four laps down in 27th.
