Team Interstate’s Mike Edwards served notice to the rest of the NHRA Pro Stock field this weekend: “You can be first while also being Second.”

Edwards and the Interstate Batteries/I Am Second/K&N Chevy Camaro team dominated the Dollar General Four-Wide Nationals to earn his 35th career victory and his first of 2013.

On Saturday, he eclipsed his own national elapsed-time record with a run of 6.471 seconds. With that, he earned his fifth straight No. 1 qualifying effort, the second-longest streak to start a Pro Stock season since 2006.

“It feels really good to come away with a win today,” Edwards said. “We stuck with our game plan from start to finish, and that was to not be too aggressive on race day, go down the track on every run and not beat ourselves. And we just did that today.

“It is really special to put this Interstate Batteries Camaro in the winner’s circle for Chairman of the Board and I Am Second founder Norm Miller,” he continued. “Norm has blessed our team so much by giving us the opportunity to be associated with such a fine company as Interstate Batteries and to be able to carry the I Am Second message to the drag racing community has been incredible.”

Matt Kenseth, driver of the No. 20 Toyota Camry, led Team Interstate by winning the STP 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race Sunday at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City from the pole. It was his 26th career Sprint Cup victory, his second of the season and his second at Kansas.

Kyle Busch and Elliott Sadler both finished their days early due to separate accidents, and Brian Vickers was involved in an accident but managed to finish 10 laps down. Busch finished 38th, Sadler 40th and Vickers 31st.

Other Team Interstate Results:

Justin Brayton had a few guests from Interstate, too! Several folks from IBS of Seattle and surrounding areas joined the Interstate Batteries hospitality tent outside the JGRMX hauler.
