Nascar: Carl Edwards wins NASCAR’s Sprint All-Star race image

The race had been promoted as a ‘no holds barred” grudge match where chaos could break out at any minute and scores might be settled.

Edwards exited the pits first during a mandatory four-tire stop prior to the start of the final 10-lap segment. He then held off a hard-charging Kyle Busch, the pole sitter, during the closing laps to win his first all-star race at Charlotte. His previous best finish in this event was fourth, which came in 2006.
Although he appeared to hit either a manhole cover or a drainage device, his car instead seemed only to dip hard into the grass — contact that crumpled the front of his No. 99 Roush Fenway Racing Ford.
After his trademark celebratory backflip, Edwards needed a tow truck to take him to Victory Lane. He left behind a deep rut in Charlotte’s infield grass.
