Matt had a pretty good review of the race for you, but I like to bring the technical stuff;  points and results.  Usually you have to click on 3 different links just to see info, which is why I like to have them all in one place.  We knew coming into this race that a Cup driver was probably going to win.  Carl Edwards did just that, proving once again that he belongs in the Cup Series.  Oh that's right, he does drive in the Cup Series.  Edwards beating a field of Nationwide drivers is like Peyton Manning dropping under center for the USC Trojans against the TCU Horned Frogs.  You know he's gonna pick apart that defense and win it 81-3. 


Results and More after the JUMP!

If Austin Dillon is not a Nationwide Regular next year, I'll be surprised.  He's shown that he's ready for the leap.  After a 30th place finish, we have yet another new Points Leader.  Reed Sorenson takes the top spot this week:

 

POS Car Driver Points Wins
1 32 REED SORENSON 702 1
2 6 RICKY STENHOUSE JR. 697 1
3 2 ELLIOTT SADLER 688 0

9 88 Dale Earnhardt Jr. 631
10 20 Joe Gibbs 630

 

And the locked in drivers:

31 23 Robert Richardson Sr. 311
32 40 Curtis Key Sr. 281
33 52 Jimmy Means 277
