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.
