Carl Edwards topped final practice for the Nationwide Series Thursday night at the Chicagoland Speedway with Greg Biffle second, two Roush Fenway Racing Fords atop the speed charts.

This will be the second night race in a row for the series before going to Gateway next weekend for another, so it will work for the driver who can let his team know how to tune the car for the win.

Kyle Busch swept both the Nationwide and Cup races last summer in Chicago. Can he do that again? It's been an up-and-down year for Kyle, who has lost a lot of races. Maybe his bad luck is coming early and will have a good end to the 2009 season.
