DOVER, Del (AP) -- Carl Edwards has held on to win the Nationwide Series at Dover International Speedway after a wreck-filled final lap that knocked out several contenders.

Edwards battle with Joey Logano off the final restart of Saturday's race turned dangerous in a hurry. Logano got loose as he tried to scoot around Edwards and slammed into the wall, triggering a pile up that eliminated Clint Bowyer from contention. Bowyer's car slid sideways down the concrete track.

Edwards thought he hit Logano and caused the accident. But Edwards, who announced the birth of his son this week, never made serious contact and won on the second attempt of a green-white finish.

The accident shook up the final results. Kyle Busch was second and Reed Sorenson third.

The race was delayed and, later interrupted, by rain.
