|Edwards Takes Nationwide Race in Wild Finish
|MADISON, Ill. (AP) -- Carl Edwards prevailed in a wild final lap, nudging Brad Keselowski out of control on the final straightaway to take the Nationwide Dodge Dealers 250 on Saturday night.
Keselowski was on the inside and had appeared to take the lead before Edwards' car drifted into him. Keselowski spun into the wall and was struck head-on by another car.
Edwards, of Columbia, Mo., won for the third time at Gateway International Raceway, which he considers his home track. Reed Sorenson was second and pole-sitter Trevor Bayne third, while Keselowski finally rolled across the line in 14th.
Keselowski was runner-up in the Camping World 200 truck race earlier Saturday, and led much of the Nationwide series event.
