A broken right foot did not keep Carl Edwards from winning the Nationwide Series race last night at Richmond. Edwards continues his rehabilitation after breaking hit foot while playing frisbee last Wednesday night in Columbia.
A great final pit stop under caution put him in the lead, and he did the rest driving away from Kevin Harvick over the last 20 laps.
For the third time this season, Edwards won a race after staring from the back. The win was his fourth this season in the Nationwide series.
He will start from the 10 th spot in the last race before the Chase tonight at Richmond. After tonight, the 12 drivers will be set for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Chase for the Championship.
Carl Edwards sits in fifth place before tonight’s race, the Chevy Rock and Roll 400, at the Richmond International Speedway in Virginia. He will be trying to forget last Sunday’s race at Atlanta where he finished 37th.
The 10 race Chase for the Championship will begin next weekend in Loudon, New Hampshire.
The green flag on tonight’s race will drop just after 6:00.
