Those three Toyota drivers finished second through fourth while Joey Logano was fifth and Kahne ended up sixth.

>>Edwards To Leave Roush-Fenway

(Indianapolis, IN) -- Carl Edwards will part ways with Roush-Fenway Racing after this NASCAR season. Roush confirmed the long-expected news Sunday. Edwards has been with Roush-Fenway for 11 years but is believed to be poised to join Joe Gibbs Racing next season in a new fourth car. No announcement on that will be made until at least September due to contract issues. Edwards was a two-time Sprint Cup Series runner-up with Roush-Fenway, posting second-place finishes in 2008 and 2011. He has 23 wins with the team.
