Sunday afternoon in the desert sun, Carl Edwards ended his 70 race drought. That was the first time in almost 2 full seasons the Sprint Cup has season one of Edwards famous backflips. Johnson finished second to maintain the points lead he gained by winning Daytona last Sunday. Earnhardt Jr finished fourth, leaving him second in the point standings. Danica’s Daytona momentum did not last through Phoenix, she wrecked causing her to finish out of the top twenty-five. On to Vegas next week.
