Carl Edwards weekend is off to a good start after he wins the Nationwide race last night at Texas Motor Speedway. 

Edwards was able to dodge a nasty crash on lap 88 that took out Kyle Busch.

He was dominant the entire race as he never dropped below 3rd place and led 169 of 200 laps.  It was the 2nd straight win for Edwards in the Nationwide series.

He will take that momentum into the Sprint Cup Race tonight, also at Texas.

Edwards will start from the 2nd spot when the green flag drops at 6.
