Sharpie 500 - Bristol Motor Speedway

Edwards Goes Bump in the Night to Win at Bristol
If NASCAR Sprint Cup Series racing needs a rivalry, look no farther than Bristol Motor Speedway. Carl Edwards suggested after Saturday night’s Sharpie 500 that a rivalry with series points leader Kyle Busch might have been born at the .533-mile short track. “They keep talking about rivalries -- we might have one now,” Edwards said after beating Busch to the finish line by 1.969 seconds. He led the final 31 laps after executing an adroit bump-and-run to pass Busch through Turns 1 and 2 on Lap 470. From that point, Edwards pulled away for his second consecutive victory.
