The dominate car was not the winner at Darlington Raceway Sunday. That honor belonged to the driver who was among those who led the fewest laps. He did however lead the most important. Carl Edwards took the race lead on pit stops with eight laps to go and held off Brad Keselowski and Denny Hamlin to win the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Bojangles Southern 500.
Edwards overcame a two-lap deficit after a pit call miscue on lap 61 left him out on old tires. He was able to come back and beat the cars who had been the class of the field to score his second win of the season, and his first at the historic Darlington Raceway.
The other win for Edwards this season came in NASCAR’s longest race, the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte in May. MORE>>>
