Carl Edwards conquered the so-called Monster Mile at Dover, Delaware in the
NASCAR Busch Series. He drove the No. 60 Dish Network Ford Fusion to its third
victory of the 2007 season and extended his points lead by 472 points.
Edwards started eighth but immediately propelled into the top-five where he
remained for the rest of the 200 lap race. After lap 177 he fought off several
late race yellows to catch Roush Fenway teammate Matt Kenseth in a fight for the
lead. The two battled over the next 13 laps.

Edwards passed Kenseth in the closing laps. With only ten laps remaining the
final caution flag flew. In the single file restart Edwards held off Denny
Hamlin and Scott Wimmer to secure first place.
“The win was unbelievable,” said Edwards. “This is probably the best car I’ve
ever had. Pierre Kuettel and all the guys on our team were awesome. Pierre and I
were both thinking you can't lose a race with a car this good. It would really
make Jack Roush mad. Everything worked out and it was great. It was an awesome
race to win.”
Next week Edwards travels back and forth from Nashville, Tennessee with full
intentions to “three”-peat at the track where they dominate. Edwards is the
defending champion there.
“Carl Edwards is on a roll,” said K&N Engineering Sports Marketing Director
Charles Maier. “He is doing quite well with his Busch team and we are happy he
is making it to the front with K&N products.”
