NASCAR At Watkins Glen 2012: Carl Edwards Wins Zippo 200

Carl Edwards won the 2012 Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen on Saturday in his first Nationwide Series start of the season. Edward edged out Brad Keselowski on Lap 73 of 82 after a restart with 10 laps to go. Austin Dillon's blown tire created a caution and eventually led to the restart. Keselowski took the lead back for a moment on Lap 76, but Edwards regained control by the first turn of Lap 77.

Keselowski ultimately finished second by 1.130 seconds to Edwards. Sam Hornish Jr., Rick Stenhouse Jr. and Ron Fellows rounded out the Top 5. Danica Patrick entered the race with high expectations, but her car suffered terminal damage before the race was a lap old.
