Battling for a top-five position late in the race, Carl Edwards’ Toyota got tight entering turn one. He pushed up the track, clipped Ryan Newman, and crashed hard. Edwards was unable to continue and finished 35th after starting on the outside pole.
This was the second time in two weeks the two drivers got together late in the going. At New Hampshire Motor Speedway last week, the incident seemed to be triggered by Newman; this time it was Edwards’ fault, but the damage to their relationship on the track will begin to take a toll.
