LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Mark Martin took Dale Earnhardt Junior to
Victory Lane by winning the Nationwide Series race at Las Vegas
Motor Speedway. He then apologized for an accident he started in
the closing laps. Martin is the winningest driver in NASCAR's Number-2 series. He raced to the 48th victory of his career in a car owned by
Earnhardt's JR Motorsports. But the win came at the expense of Carl
Edwards and Brad Keselowski, who races full-time for Earnhardt.
Greg Biffle finished second and was followed by Clint Bowyer,
Kevin Harvick, David Stremme and Dario Franchitti (fran-KEET'-ee)
in his career best NASCAR finish.
