Edwards wins again; Truex nears crown
Published November 13, 2005
AVONDALE, Ariz. - Carl Edwards won another race Saturday, this time holding off Busch series runnerup Clint Bowyer to take the Arizona 200 at Phoenix International Raceway.
Bowyer's second-place run, combined with a sixth-place finish for points leader and reigning Busch Series champion Martin Truex, cut the leader's margin to 64 points with only next week's race at Homestead-Miami Speedway remaining.
But all Truex needs to do to assure himself of becoming the first repeat winner in the series since Dale Earnhardt Jr. - co-owner of his car - in 1998-99, is finish 12th or better, even if Bowyer wins and leads the most laps.
Truex didn't act like a driver on the brink of another championship, though. The disappointed Chance 2 driver said, "We can't seem to do anything right. We adjusted the car on every pit stop and it never got better. It was just a rough day."
Looking ahead to Homestead, he added, "We still need to go there and have a decent run. I've always done pretty well there and I'd like nothing better than to go there and win and put this thing away."
Bowyer started 32nd in the 43-car field and had to battle his way to the front for the second straight race.
He nearly got past Edwards about 18 laps from the end of the 200-lap event on the 1-mile Phoenix oval, but Edwards, driving a high line on the slick track, somehow held on and eventually pulled away as Kenseth battled Bowyer for second place.
