Kyle Busch holds off Edwards to win Nationwide race at ORP
CLERMONT, Ind. (AP) -- Kyle Busch held off Carl Edwards in a two-lap sprint to the finish to win the NASCAR Nationwide race at O'Reilly Raceway Park on Saturday night.
Busch used a perfectly timed restart to keep a hard-charging Edwards at bay and pick up his eighth win of the season and his fifth in his last six starts.
Edwards, who was docked 60 points and fined $25,000 for taking out series points leader Brad Keselowski at the end of last week's race in St. Louis, kept things clean this time. He used a late gamble to take on tires to roar through the field but didn't have quite enough to track down Busch.
Aric Almirola finished third, followed by pole-sitter Trevor Bayne and Reed Sorenson. Keselowski faded late to finish eighth.
