FONTANA, Calif.—Carl Edwards, driver of the No. 99 Roush Fenway Ford, won the rain-delayed Auto Club 500 on Monday.
Edwards took the lead from defending Cup champion Jimmie Johnson on lap 237 of the 250-lap race.
Johnson was the leader after the final round of pit stops with 26 laps left. Edwards came out third, but he clearly had the fastest car as he went on to capture the eighth victory of his career.
The race ended under caution when Dale Jarrett spun on the final lap, but it didn’t matter because Edwards had a lead of more than four seconds on Johnson.
