NASCAR driver Carl Edwards has had a hot start to the current season, the best start of his career.

He received a gift in winning the most recent Sprint Cup race, an error by Tony Stewart.

Stewart had the dominate car  in the Kobalt Tools 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, but he committed a penalty on pit road which hurt his chances of winning.

Stewart was the race leader when he was penalized for leaving his pit stall with the air hose still attached to his Chevy.

Edwards, driving in a Roush Fenway Racing Ford, pulled away for the win, while Stewart dropped to 22nd after the four-tire stop, finished second.

The win was the 19th of his career.

Juan Pablo Montoya in a Chevrolet finished third and Marcos Ambrose in a Ford ended up fourth and Ryan Newman in another Chevy, finished fifth.
