HOMESTEAD, Fla., Nov. 15 (UPI) -- Carl Edwards won Saturday's Ford 300 at the Homestead Miami Speedway.

Edwards held off Kyle Busch in a four-lap shootout to the finish to capture his seventh Nationwide victory of the season and 20th of his career.

Busch finished second, Brad Keselowski third and Jason Leffler fourth.
