Wimmer Takes Nationwide Win

Scott Wimmer passed Richard Childress Racing teammate Clint Bowyer with 21 laps to go and held on to win the Nationwide Series' Pepsi 300 on Saturday at Nashville Superspeedway.
The Childress cars took the top two spots, six days after the team swept the top three positions in the Sprint Cup series race at Bristol.
Wimmer edged Bowyer by 0.578 seconds. Carl Edwards was third, followed by Brad Keselowski and Kelly Bires. Bowyer took the series points lead from Kevin Harvick, the fellow Childress Sprint Cup driver who skipped the Nashville race.
Alabama driver Cale Gale of Mobile finished eighth -- the best showing among four rookies in the Pepsi 300 lineup. Gale says it was his fourth start at Nashville, calling it a good day.
"It's difficult running a partial schedule," he says, "and not being able to run every week. It takes a while to get going. But it's my first top 10 in the Nationwide Series, so I'm real happy about that."
