BRISTOL, Tenn. – Carl Edwards seemed to be cruising to victory in the final laps of Sunday's Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

But nothing would come easily this day or night for drivers, fans or track officials in a race delayed more than five hours by rain.

Edwards had opened a lead of more than four seconds when the track's caution lights inexplicably came on with less than three laps remaining. Seconds later, a cloudburst released the hardest rain of the day or night.

The race finished under caution and Edwards did prevail, finishing ahead of his teammate Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Aric Almirola in a 1-2-3 sweep by Fords.

"I did not want to see that caution," Edwards said. "Concern was not a strong enough word. So, I'm glad the rain came. I think there were some higher powers at work there."

As part of the show, young attendees along with their friends and family were invited to take part in various mini-games that were held throughout the night as well as some hilarious dance sequences.

The Harlem Ambassadors use their headturning basketball skills to spread laughs and a positive message to kids, “Stay in School – Stay Off Drugs.”

Partnered with The Franklin Chamber of Commerce and the Franklin High School Booster Club, the Ambassadors made Franklin one of their more than 200 shows they put on each year.

When they secured their win against East Rutherford just four nights earlier, they had made school history by advancing the further into the state playoffs than any other FHS women's basketball team ever had. As a result of their epic regional semifinal win, they were now set to play the Bandys Lady Trojans, a team who entered the Western Regional championship undefeated and with their closest game being decided by 20 points. In other words, the Lady Trojans had been dominant in their season.
