Brad Keselowski pushed Carl Edwards to the front in the final four laps, then dove inside for the victory as Edwards spun trying to block and was flipped.

“We were very fortunate that we hit the wall in a way that it didn’t crush my rollcage and come down on my neck, because that would have been much worse,” said Edwards, who ended up 24th.

Edwards was not mad at Keselowski, who drove on to victory, but it was clear that he has no love of restrictor-plate racing. “NASCAR just puts us in this box,” said Edwards. “Brad did a great job. Congrats to him on the win. But they put us in this box and we’ll race like this until we kill somebody and then they’ll change it. But I’m just glad nobody got hurt today, glad the car didn’t go up into the grandstands and hurt somebody.”
