Edwards Wins Nationwide Race in Montreal

MONTREAL (AP) - Carl Edwards passed Marcos Ambrose on the final
turn to win the crash-filled Nationwide race at Circuit Gilles
Villeneuve, which ended with the cars on rain tires for the second
straight year.

Edwards won a two-lap sprint to the finish when Ambrose, who
dominated the race, slid sideways after hitting the rumble strips
in turn 14. It was Edwards' first career road win.

Ambrose overcame three other restarts in the final 11 laps of the race, which was plagued by 11 cautions and went an extra lap.

Points leader Kyle Busch went from fourth to 10th on the final two.
NASCAR Canadian Tire Series star Andrew Ranger was third. Former
Formula One star Jacques Villeneuve finished fourth on the track
named for his father, and Brad Keselowski was fifth.
