Edwards only had to make a successful run down the track to clinch the title in his Young Life Pontiac GXP. His win became official at the conclusion of Saturday’s qualifying session. Edwards took home K&N low qualifier money at 16 races in 2009 and tied Greg Anderson's season record.

“We came into Pomona in a position we were never in before,” said Edwards. “I’ve had a fabulous car all year long and a really good bunch of guys on my team. We all pulled the rope in the same direction and that paid off for us.”

Edwards started the 2009 season off well and was soon on a roll. He kept the momentum going for the rest of the year. His pass at Pomona of 6.562 seconds at 210.64 mph was also the best of the weekend.

“I’m really happy for my team,” he said, “I also want to thank K&N for the great support in 2009 and for helping to keep the Pro Stock class alive with the awesome K&N Horsepower Challenge. I’m very lucky to be living the dream and am looking forward to 2010.”
