Ragan Holds Off Edwards To Win Food City 250
David Ragan had a strong restart on the green-white-checkered finish and held off his Roush Fenway Racing teammate Carl Edwards to win the Food City 250 at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Top 5: Ragan, Edwards, Brad Keselowski, Kevin Harvick, Matt Kenseth.
Jason Leffler, Clint Bowyer, Michael Annett, Paul Menard, and Michael McDowell rounded out the top 10.
Notables: David Reutimann (11th), Ryan Newman (12th), Steve Wallace (17th), Justin Allgiaer (27th), Kyle Busch (28th), Reed Sorenson (35th), and Kasey Kahne (37th).
Edwards gained 91 points on points-leader Kyle Busch, after Busch was involved in a hard crash with Chase Austin. Busch passed Kevin Harvick for the lead. As he was coming out of turn 4, Austin, who had a tire down, pulled down the track right in front of Busch. Busch hit the frontstretch wall hard. Reed Sorenson was also collected.
