Carl led 122 of the 316 laps at Phoenix International Raceway to win his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory in almost two years. In a thrilling green-white-checkered-flag finish that took the race four laps past its original distance of 312 laps, Carl demolished a 70-race losing streak to win his 20th NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory. “To be in Victory Lane this early in the season, to have a car like we had today, it’s really great,” Edwards said. “This win was as good or better than any win I’ve ever had…I’m very, very happy to be back in the mix here.

I did not like that at all.” Photo credit: 283476 Jeff Zelevansky/Nascar via Getty Images Many, including m...
