HAMPTON, Ga. (AP) - Carl Edwards worked his way from the back of the pack after a penalty in a pit stop early in the race and held off Kyle Busch to win the Nationwide Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Saturday night.
Starting from the pole, Edwards led the first 43 laps before being penalized for having equipment out of his team's allotted space during a pit stop. He went to the back of the field but quickly moved his way through the pack.
Edwards won a battle with Kevin Harvick for the lead after the sixth caution ended with 19 laps remaining.
Nationwide points leader Ricky Stenhouse Jr. came out of the restart in sixth but quickly moved up, passing Busch for second before finishing third.
