Ron Fellows, Carl Edwards Take Weekend Wins

Matt MercerCorrespondent IAugust 5, 2008

In Montreal, Canadian Ron Fellows won in what was certainly a first in NASCAR racing. It was a rain-soaked event in which those with the experience rose to the top.

Patrick Carpentier finished as runnerup for the second year in a row, and Marcos Ambrose won the bronze. Fellows' victory interview can be found here, courtesy of Nationwide.

On the Cup side, Carl Edwards finally won again—his fourth win of the year.

I'll admit to being bored by Pocono, and I fell asleep before the rain delay...I blame a big lunch.

All I know is that I hoped we would see clear skies and the green flag would come out again. Kasey Kahne winning three times a year is three times too much.

Thankfully it did and he didn't, as Edwards probably had the fastest car throughout the day and had enough gas to make it to the line first.

Kudos to David Ragan on a fifth place run. He continues to stay right around that 12th spot to sneak into the Chase.

Finally, a nice lady from NBC alerted me to an upcoming special on General Motors to air on CNBC, titled Saving General Motors. It takes an unprecedented look into the company as it fights for survival. For NASCAR fans, Dale Jr. will be appearing in the new 2010 Camaro.

I look forward to watching and seeing how they explain the problems—and how they're going about fixing them.
