Columbia native Carl Edwards passed Marcos Ambrose on the final lap to win the Nationwide Series NAPA Auto Parts 200, for his first road race win one of NASCAR’s top three divisions.  Edwards picks up his third win of the Nationwide season and trails Kyle Busch by 129 points with ten races remaining.

Ambrose was in the lead when NASCAR called the eighth caution of the afternoon after a shower hit the race track as the cars were on Lap 59. Two laps later, NASCAR ordered the cars to pit road and red-flagged the race while crews mounted rain tires and installed wipers and lights.

They restarted on Lap 64 and Ambrose held off Edwards through three cautions in the remaining laps with Edwards making his move in the final corner.
