Nationwide - Dover - Race results

Carl Edwards emerged as winner at the end of a turbulent, incident-packed and rain-affected Nationwide race at Dover's Monster Mile.
Carl Edwards ended up the winner of the Nationwide Series' 5-Hour Energy 200 at the Dover International Speedway, but his customary back flip off the door of the #99 was missing.

A major last lap wreck on the green-white-checkered finish had left Joey Logano spinning off turn 4 while battling with Edwards, his #20 collecting the car of Clint Bowyer and sending it airborne on its side, while Brad Keselowski, Kyle Busch, Aric Almirola and several other cars also ended up involved in the carnage.

Edwards, understandably, didn't want to be rejoicing while they were still picking up the pieces: "I apologize for not doing the back flip there guys. I thought that I wrecked them and I didn't want to be celebrating over that but it looks like we didn't hit them, we won the race in our fast Ford Mustang and that is good."

Kyle Busch still managed to finish in second, but his hopes of winning a second NASCAR triple crown here at Dover this weekend - and equalling Mark Martin's record of 49 Nationwide career victories - were over. His hopes, and his car, had already been dented when he was caught in the middle of an accordion-style crush of cars coming onto pit road under yellow on lap 93 with Logano in front and Reed Sorenson to the rear.

The caution had already been out for Alex Kennedy wrecking on lap 87. Kennedy then attempted to get back to the pits but pulled right out in front of Kevin Swindell, the 17-year-old Roush Fenway Racing substitute driver substituting this week in Trevor Bayne's #16. Kennedy and his spotter were ordered to report to the NASCAR hauler after the race for causing the accident.

Swindell said that he was "ready to come down pit road and I guess whoever was wrecked thought they could drive back across and drove straight up the hill. I was coming and at least it was just me and he didn't wipe out more of us, but it ruins a great opportunity for me."

The race had finally got underway after a 90-minute rain delay. There was a further half hour rain delay at lap 144, where it looked for a time that Josh Wise might fluke a victory by not coming into the pits: "We were the last car on the lead lap, so why not stay out and take the gamble?" Wise said. But the rain abated and Wise had to pit after all, as the race ending up running its full course.
