Edwards takes Michigan Nationwide race

BROOKLYN, Mich. -- Carl Edwards won Saturday's Alliance Truck Parts 250 at Michigan International Speedway, outdistancing second-place and Roush Fenway Racing teammate Ricky Stenhouse Jr. in the process.

"We needed about a 15-lap run at the end going green," said Stenhouse, who takes over the points lead with the second-place finish. "We just weren't fast enough for Carl."

Reed Sorenson, who was the points leader entering the race, finished 11th.

Kyle Busch was third and pole-sitter Paul Menard fourth.
