The NASCAR Nashville 300, the first Nationwide Series race at the Nashville Superspeedway of the season, ran on Saturday, April 23. In the race was Roush Fenway Racing driver Carl Edwards, who has won three Nationwide Series races in Nashville but hasn’t earned the checkered flag there since 2007.
That changed this past weekend. Edwards drove the No. 60 Ford Mustang, holding the lead for 148 of 225 laps, and he reached the checkered flag 0.521 seconds ahead of Kyle Busch. With this win, Edwards has two victories for the 2011 NASCAR Nationwide Series and, as his fourth win at the Nashville Superspeedway, he now has the most victories in the history of that track’s Nationwide races.
Edwards will drive the World Financial Group (WFG) No. 60 Ford Mustang in the NASCAR Nationwide Series race on Nov. 12 at the Phoenix International Raceway in Avondale, Ariz.
