LEBANON, Tenn., April 8 (UPI) -- Carl Edwards won Saturday afternoon's Pepsi 300 Busch Series race at the Nashville Superspeedway.

The No.60 Roush Fenway Racing Ford crossed the finish line 4.673 seconds ahead of David Reutimann.

The victory was Edwards' second in a row and 11th of his Busch career.

"I'm very fortunate to drive for Roush Racing," he said.

Edwards again built a big lead after a debris caution flag on lap 180 set everyone up for a final sprint to the checkered flag.

The only thing that could stop him from cruising to back-to-back victories was a caution flag or a mechanical problem.

"We didn't have anything for Carl," said Jason Leffler.

Dave Blaney, Leffler, and Regan Smith completed the top-five.

The win gives Edwards a 321-point lead over Blaney, who jumped past the idle Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch in the standings.
