Carl Edwards started on the pole and never looked back, leading 169 of 200 laps in a dominating victory in Friday night's Nationwide Series race at Texas Motor Speedway. The win marked the first trip to victory lane for the Ford Mustang in the Nationwide Series. It is Edwards' second consecutive victory in the NNS at Texas and Roush Fenway's sixth series win at the 1.5-mile track.

It was Edwards' 30th career Nationwide Series win, making him just the fifth driver ever to accomplish that feat. The win was Roush Fenway's 14th overall NASCAR win at Texas.

"That was big," said Edwards. "Just an unreal race; the car was fast. The first win for the Mustang and the first win for Fastenal this season, they have come on board and been a great partner and I've had a lot of fun with them. It was a great effort by this team. We still have space on this car, so if anyone wants to market with a great company and a great team, we have space available. "

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. , who led five laps in the race, maintained his Nationwide Series points lead after qualifying third and finishing eighth. It marks Stenhouse's fifth top-10 finish in six races this season. Trevor Bayne, who qualified sixth, finished 13th. 

The Nationwide Series returns to action next weekend at Talladega Superspeedway where Roush Fenway has won twice in NNS action.
