DARLINGTON, SC (TheSpread) – In another surprise in the NASCAR season, Regan Smith got his first career Sprint Cup win as he won the 2011 Showtime Southern 500 on Saturday night.

Smith was the benefactor of a late caution and he held off the surging Carl Edwards to get the victory, while Edwards picked up the second-place finish.

According to oddsmakers at online sports book Bodog.com, Smith had 100/1 odds to win the race, so a $100 wager on Smith to win will pay out $10,000.

Taking the spotlight away from the win was a scuffle between Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick. Busch spun Harvick late during a wreck and Harvick didn’t take too kindly to it. Harvick finished 17th while Busch came in 11th.
