Mike Edwards

Mike Edwards claimed his first Pro Stock win of the 2011 season and second straight at Las Vegas by defeating rookie and first-time finalist Vincent Nobile. Edwards ran 6.69, 205.98 in his Weld Racing wheel equipped Pontiac GXP to take his 29th victory and hold off Nobile, who finished with a 6.71, 205.69 in his Mountain View Tire Dodge Avenger. “We started off pretty slow in 2011,” the 2009 world champ said. “We regrouped and came in here with a new car and made some tremendous runs all weekend. It’s a total team effort. My guys did an awesome job all weekend. They gave me 110 percent, and they never quit. I am so proud of them. It’s a great win, and we want to try to build on this and try to improve as much as we can and keep trying to run well and make good decisions.”
