Carl Edwards assumes Sprint Cup points lead after second win in a row
Carl Edwards’ bump-and-run of Kyle Busch to win the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond helped give Edwards the overall lead in the Sprint Cup points.
Edwards took the spot from Kevin Harvick, who had the points lead for four of the last five weeks.
Filling out the top five is Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch and Joey Logano. Logano is the only driver in the top five without a win this season.
After making his first start of the season due to recovery from injuries, Tony Stewart finished the day at Richmond 40th in the standings. He must have one win and be in the top 30 to qualify for the Chase for the Sprint Cup.
