Edwards Wins Dodge Dealers 250

Carl Edwards won the Dodge Dealers 250 from Gateway International Raceway for his second victory in the Nationwide Series.

Joey Logano, Jason Keller, Jason Leffler, and Brad Keselowski rounded out the top 5.

Landon Cassill, James Buescher, Clint Bowyer, David Stremme, and David Ragan finished sixth through 10th, respectively.

Notables: Mike Wallace (11th), Marcos Ambrose (15th), David Reutimann (25th), Jamie McMurray (27th), Reed Sorenson (29th), and Scott Wimmer (30th).

Sorenson had a good car, running in the top 5 through much of the early part of the race. On a restart, Sorenson, Wimmer and Cassill were racing for positions when Wimmer tried to go to the inside of Sorenson. He got loose and lifted off the throttle.

Cassill got into the back of him, sending him head on into the outside wall. Sorenson was collected.

Reutimann also had a strong car, capable of winning. Late in the race, he was struggling to get by McMurray. Keselowski went to the outside to pass Reutimann. Reutimann went up the race track and the two made contact and hit the wall. Reutimann got heavy damage and finished 25th. Keselowski had a hole in his hood, but managed to rebound to a fifth place finish.

    I don’t always go out of my way to root for Carl, but anytime the NNS hits Gateway, I’m always pulling for either him, Jamie Mac, or one of the Wallace’s … it’s just always nice to see a hometown boy win in Stl.

    At this point, I’m pulling for anyone who isn’t named Kyle Busch.

    You’re making it sound like it was any better last season when it was Hendrick winning everything! lol

  4. leadlap says:

    Well, at least when Hendrick was winning, it was among three different teams. Right now, it is just that No. 20 in the Nationwide series and the No. 18 and KB in the Sprint Cup series.
