CONCORD, N.C., May 27 (UPI) -- Carl Edwards won Saturday night's Carquest Auto Parts 300 Busch Series event at the Lowe's Motor Speedway in North Carolina.
Edwards finished 2.458 seconds ahead of runner-up Kurt Busch.
The victory was Edwards' first of the season and sixth of his Busch career.
Pole winner Matt Kenseth led just one lap before yielding the top spot to Kevin Harvick. Jamie McMurray was the next to lead the race on lap three, but while leading his Dodge blew a right-front tire and slammed into the outside wall to end his evening.
Four green flag laps later, Tony Stewart slammed the outside wall with his Chevrolet. The debris that scattered from Stewart's car hit a number of cars -- including those driven by Dave Blaney, Kenny Wallace, Kasey Kahne and Mark Martin.
