Concrete Carl has earned his moniker once again, winning on the concrete track on Nashville Superspeedway.

Edwards and reigning Nationwide Series champion Brad Keselowski dominated the race. Edwards led a total of 124 laps while Keselowski led 89.

Elliott Sadler, who went into the race as the points leader, stripping his rear gears after completing a pit stop. A 30th place finish cost Sadler the points lead but there is still plenty of racing left in the season for the team to rebound.

Making only his tenth start in the Nationwide series, Austin Dillon finished in third after winning yesterday’s Camping World Truck series race.
