|Edwards Edges Stenhouse in Nationwide Race
|BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) -- Carl Edwards raced to his fourth NASCAR Nationwide victory of the year, passing teammate Ricky Stenhouse Jr. with less than 10 laps remaining Saturday at Michigan International Speedway.
Edwards, the Sprint Cup points leader, had finished second in three straight Nationwide races since winning at Dover in May, but he was able to slip underneath Stenhouse and then cut in front of him before holding on to win by 1.669 seconds in the No. 60 Ford.
Edwards and Stenhouse gave Roush Fenway Racing a 1-2 finish.
Kyle Busch finished third, followed by pole-sitter Paul Menard.
Edwards isn't eligible to earn Nationwide points. Reed Sorenson, the points leader entering the race, finished 11th.
