Edwards Wins 2nd Straight Win at Phoenix
AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Carl Edwards has won the Nationwide Series race at Phoenix International Raceway, leading 153 laps in claiming his second straight win.

Edwards had total control of Saturday's race after winning last week at Texas, and now has four Nationwide victories this season.

Kevin Harvick finished second and was followed by Joey Logano, Brad Keselowski and Reed Sorenson.

Aric Almirola was sixth and was followed by Colin Braun and Justin Allgaier. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Steve Wallace rounded out the top 10.

Danica Patrick finished 32nd after a rough race. She had a tire problem after making contact with Tony Raines, but also bumped and banged with Alex Kennedy for several laps in the middle of the race.
