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

But Edwards came up 21 points short of defending his Nationwide Series championship as Clint Bowyer clinched his first title in one of NASCAR's three national touring series with a fifth-place finish.

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.
