Saturday, November 8, 2008. (AP) -- Carl Edwards won at Phoenix International Raceway on Saturday to remain in mathematical contention to defend his Nationwide Series title.

Edwards trailed Clint Bowyer at the start of the race by 91points, but an accident on a restart prevented Bowyer from challenging for the victory. It cleared the way for Edwards to roll to his sixth Nationwide win of the season.

Bowyer now goes to next week's season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway with a 56-point lead over Edwards.

Denny Hamlin finished second and Kevin Harvick was third. Bowyer, who dropped all the way back to 30th after his accident, rallied to finish fourth. Landon Cassill rounded out the top five.
