LAS VEGAS -- Carl Edwards found a way to put the frustration of the first two Sprint Cup races of the season behind him.

After finishing second in the Daytona 500 and having his pole-winning car knocked into the fence the following week at Phoenix, Edwards finally found Victory Lane -- in Sunday's Kobalt Tools 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Edwards took the lead from Tony Stewart during a cycle of pit stops late in the race. Stewart, who had taken two tires in a track-position play on his previous stop, had to pit early for four tires during the final run. Edwards had the luxury of taking two tires on his final stop, and that gave him the margin he needed to beat fast-closing race runner-up Stewart and third-place Juan Montoya to the finish line.
