SONOMA, CA - Carl Edwards finished third in the Save Mart 350 Sprint Cup race at Infineon Raceway to lead the Roush Fenway effort at Sonoma. Matt Kenseth finished 14th, Greg Biffle was 23rd and David Ragan was 29th.

Edwards used the finish to extend his Sprint Cup points lead from 20 to 25 over Kevin Harvick.

After receiving approval from his team's sponser, Fastenal, to skip Saturday's Nationwide Series Race, Edwards was able to feel well rested for the Sprint Cup Road Race on Sunday.

He finished the race as one of the few cars that wasn't damaged from the numerous on-track incidents from drivers retailiting against each other.
