Carl Edwards wins O’Reilly 300 From Pole

[media-credit id=19 align=”alignright” width=”225″][/media-credit]Carl Edwards dominated the O’Reilly 3oo at the Texas Motor Speedway Friday night holding off a hard charging Brad Keselowski.  Keselowski was almost a half second back at the finish.

The only car that gave Edwards a challenge crashed into a car that blew its tire in a bizarre incident.  On lap 88, Busch was in Edwards tracks when they went to pass the slower car of the No.52 driven by Tim Schendel. As Edwards went by the car shot up the track and right into Busch’s No.18 car sending it into the wall.  From there it was all Edwards

Afterwards Busch said, “It felt like we were probably the only car that was going to give Carl a shot. It’s a shame that we didn’t have the chance to race it out the rest of the night.”

Ricky Stenhouse, with his sixth place finish kept the points lead.
