David Ragan blew past leader Carl Edwards on a green-white-checkered restart and hung on to win the Nationwide Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway Saturday night.

The victory came with the yellow flag waving as a wreck caused by Steve Wallace prevented a green-flag finish and any hope for an exciting finish.

Brad Keselowski, who was involved in an early race wreck in which he hit Jason Allgaier, finished third.

Kevin Harvick was fourth.

Points leader Kyle Busch had a rough outing.

He had just taken the lead away from Harvick on lap 53 when lapped rookie Chase Austin suddenly veered left. Busch was already there and the crash sent Busch into the wall.

So much debris resulted that the race was red-flagged.

Busch’s lead over Edwards dropped to 248 points.
