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.”
