By Bill Marx
Sporting News NASCAR Wire Service


Carl Edwards' victory in last Saturday's NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Nashville was his 116th career top-five finish, moving him past Kyle Busch on the all-time list.

Edwards averaged 17.7 top fives in his first six full-time seasons. He has 10 this year, which means if he hits his career average in 2011, he will finish the season tied or in sole possession of second place on the all-time list.

Edwards is entered in this week's race in Indianapolis.
