Bumping & Grinding At Bristol

By  | 

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) - Carl Edwards isn't giving up anything to
Kyle Busch and his domination of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series
season, especially when it counts the most.
Edwards saw Busch lead 415 consecutive laps Saturday night at
Bristol Motor Speedway, then used him bumper to nudge Busch in the
first turn on lap 470. That move caused Busch's car to wiggle just
enough so that Edwards could drive by on his way to his second
consecutive victory.
The triumph was also the sixth of the season for the Roush
Fenway Racing driver, allowing him to close the gap of bonus points
he's likely to face when the 12-race Chase for the championship
begins. Busch has eight wins, and each is worth 10 Chase bonus
points.
After taking the checkered flag, Edwards was making his cooldown
lap around the track when Busch drove up and bumped his car.
Edwards clearly wasn't amused, and when he responded by driving the
nose of his car into the right side of Busch's, the fans cheered
wildly.
Busch finished second.
