 CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Sprint Cup points leader Carl Edwards moved in front on a late restart and held off Kyle Busch on the final lap to win his eighth Nationwide race of the season on Friday night.
Edwards' right side was badly damaged after hitting the wall 32 laps into the race and he fell to 27th in the Dollar General 300 Miles of Courage event at Charlotte Motor Speedway. But he steadily moved up during the race and took the lead for the first time with five laps left.
It was Edwards' sixth straight top-two finish in NASCAR's second-tier series. Edwards will try and make it a clean sweep at Charlotte - and extend his one-point lead in the Chase for the championship standings - when he starts third in Saturday night's Bank of America 500.
Busch was second and Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne third. Elliott Sadler finished fourth to earn a $100,000 bonus in the series' Dash 4 Cash.
