Carl Edwards wins Southern 500, NASCAR Darlington results


Carl Edwards won Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Darlington Raceway.

On a throwback weekend, it was the driver of the No. 19 Arris Toyota Camry finishing ahead of Brad Keselowski. Flying in the face of the weekend, Edwards was one of only a handful of drivers not driving a throwback paint scheme at the Lady in Black.

Brad Keselowski began the Bojangles Southern 500 on the pole and would dominate the race early on. Teammate Joey Logano, Kevin Harvick and Denny Hamlin would also prove to be forces.

The race set a record with 18 cautions the last of which came out with 12 laps to go. Carl Edwards was able to take the lead following pit-stops.
