Edwards wins a wet oneBRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) - Carl Edwards was the winner in a Sprint Cup race marred by two lengthy weather delays and a track light malfunction.
Edwards finished just ahead of Roush Fenway teammate Ricky Stenhouse Jr. at Bristol Motor Speedway. Edwards led for 78 of the 500 laps in his 22nd Sprint Cup victory and third at Bristol.
Rain caused two delays lasting more than five hours. And as Edwards was wrapping up his victory, the yellow caution lights came on with two laps remaining. No one was sure what the caution was for, and Edwards' crew chief even wondered if water damage might have inadvertently caused the lights to turn on. Once the sky suddenly opened, NASCAR had no choice but to declare the race over.
