Carl Edwards Wins Subway Fresh Fit 500


Carl Edwards snapped a 70-race winless streak that matched the longest of his career on Sunday with a win in the Subway Fresh Fit 500 at Phoenix International Raceway.It was the 20th win in Edwards career and his first win since Las Vegas in 2011. It was a fitting end to the Subway Fresh Fit 500 for the driver sponsored by the same company.

After the win, fans were treated to the trademark backflip from Edwards:

Here was the complete top ten finishing order:

Position Driver
 1  Carl Edwards
 2  Jimmie Johnson
 3  Denny Hamlin
 4  Brad Keselowski
 5  Dale Earnhardt Jr.
 6  Clint Bowyer
 7  Matt Kenseth
 8  Tony Stewart
 9  Jeff Gordon
 10  Jeff Burton

Unfortunately for Danica Patrick, she was unable to find the same type of success that she had found at the Dayton 500 and was involved in a crash during lap 184.

‘Whenever those right-fronts go, they always hit hard because you don’t broadside, you hit more straight on,” said Patrick, per FOX Sports. ”It took a hard hit both sides and I’m fine, so NASCAR is doing a good job at safety. But no real good warning. The car wasn’t all that tight and most of the (problems) were in the rear, so there was no real vibration that told me that was going to happen.”
