Carl Edwards was trying to hold off the always-hard charging Kyle Busch and didn’t know that the car of Tim Schendel would help him win at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas.

Edwards and Busch were 1-2 on the track on lap 88 when Tim Schendel’s car blew the right front tire and split the two front running cars. Schendel scraped the back of Edwards’ car and was in front of Busch, who had no escape route but hit Schendel with full force.

From there, Edwards went on to lead 169 of the 200 laps and win his second consecutive Nationwide race at the 1 1/2-mile, high-banked track. It was his 30th Nationwide win, the 15th NASCAR victory for car owner Jack Roush at Texas, and the first NASCAR win for a Ford Mustang.

The polesitter was steady throughout the race, never dropping below third place and won by 0.482 seconds over Brad Keselowski.

Busch had won five consecutive Nationwide races at Texas before finishing second behind Edwards in the fall race of 2010. This race marked the first time in his 13 Nationwide starts at Texas the he did not finish, and had been out of the top seven only once before.

Paul Menard finished third, Joey Logano and Elliott Sadler rounded out the top five.
