Carl Edwards single handedly dominated the OneMain Financial 200 at Dover International Speedway. Long nicknamed ‘Concrete Carl’ due to his dominating performance on the concrete surfaces, Edwards once again proved that moniker to be true.

Elliott Sadler started on pole and led the first ten laps in his KHI Chevrolet sponsored also by OneMain Financial. Edwards took the lead at lap 11 and from there, the one other driver to lead laps were Brad Keselowski for ten laps and Mike Wallace for one lap.

Miles was tame today, perhaps saving his energy for his main course tomorrow? Only four cautions slowed the race; 2 debris cautions, a competition caution at lap 40 due to rain yesterday and one accident between Brian Scott and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Both drivers were making their way onto pit road, made contact and Scott hit the giant sand barrels at the entrance to pit road.
