Back-to-Back Backflips for Edwards
Carl Edwards is one cool customer. Overcoming adversity in several different forms, the Missouri native charged home the winner Sunday of the UAW-Dodge 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. It was Edwards' second NASCAR Sprint Cup victory in a row... actually in a week since he won the weather-delayed race Monday in California. Edwards held the top spot for the last 29 laps of the race after passing Matt Kenseth for the lead.
Points Leader Kyle Busch Captures Vegas Pole
The Sprint Cup points leader, a native son of Las Vegas, will lead the field to the green flag in Sunday's UAW-Dodge 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Continuing his remarkable start to the 2008 season, Kyle Busch knocked Carl Edwards off the pole during Friday's qualifying session, turning a lap in 29.613 seconds, at an average speed of 182.352 mph, to Edwards' 29.738 seconds, at an average of 181.586 mph. Busch captured his third pole in 117 Cup races and his third top-10 starting position in five events at his hometown track of Las Vegas. Edwards will start from the outside pole, followed by Mark Martin and Jeff Gordon in row number two. Mike Skinner will roll off from the fifth position in Bill Davis' No. 27 Toyota.
