FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Trevor Bayne earned his first career NASCAR Nationwide victory when he passed dominating teammate Carl Edwards after a tremendous restart with seven laps remaining and held on Saturday at Texas.
Bayne won the Daytona 500 this year but had never won in his previous 76 Nationwide starts in the series where he is a regular for Roush Fenway Racing.
Edwards, the Cup points leader, led 157 of 200 laps at the 1 1/2-mile, high-banked track. He still led on the last restart before Bayne got a good run and eventually got by him.
Bayne's victory secured Ford's third manufacturing championship in the series.
Nationwide points leader Ricky Stenhouse finished sixth and has a 17-point lead over Elliott Sadler with two races to go.
