Tony Stewart won his first Sprint Cup race of the season and Columbian Carl Edwards wrecked himself and fellow teammates Matt Kenseth and Greg Biffle with 14 laps giving Jimmie Johnson a 72 point lead after four races in the Sprint Chase.
Edwards caused the crash by trying to bump teammate Biffle, but instead sent off a chain reaction that knocked 11 cars out of the race including his teammates.
Biffle told NASCAR.com, "Carl didn’t mean to do it, it wasn’t his fault. He caused it, but he was just trying to help and he pushed me all the way down the back and did everything he could to help," Biffle said. "We knew we were probably going to wreck here, because we’ve been in so many wrecks before."
