CONCORD, N.C. - Carl Edwards won the $1 million - and then he wrecked.

Edwards led all 10 laps of the final segment of Saturday night's NASCAR Sprint All-Star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway to win the $1 million top prize, then promptly tore up his No. 99 Ford as he tried to begin a celebratory burnout on the front stretch. It appeared Edwards' car hit a manhole cover. Edwards got out of the car, sprinted to the flag stand, and grabbed the checkered flag.

The win is Edwards' first in the race. His previous best finish in the event was fourth in 2006. Kyle Busch finished second, David Reutimann third, Tony Stewart fourth, and Greg Biffle fifth.

Kyle Busch started from the pole but was soon overtaken by Biffle, who took command of the first 50-lap segment of the all-star race.


INDIANAPOLIS - Alex Tagliani broke up the monopoly in the top-heavy IndyCar series and became the first Canadian to earn the pole for the Indianapolis 500.
