FONTANA, Calif. (AP) -- Carl Edwards charges past reigning NASCAR
Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson with 13 laps remaining and wins the rain-delayed Auto Club 500.

Johnson, winner of the past two Cup titles, came out of the final pit stop in the lead with 26 laps remaining, but Edwards came from third to grab the eighth win of his career.

The race was stopped Sunday night after 87 of the scheduled 250 laps, and resumed Monday.
