Sunday, August 3, 2008 (AP) -- Carl Edwards won the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Pocono Raceway with a gambling pit strategy that he thought would cost him the victory.
Edwards pitted from the lead Sunday just before a rain shower that caused a 41-minute red flag and had the driver arguing with crew chief Bob Osborne over the decision. But the strategy worked perfectly as the race wound up going to completion as Edwards stretched his last tank of fuel to earn his fourth victory of the season.
