      The Nationwide Series continued with its Memorial Weekend race called the 2009 The Carquest Auto Parts 300. Carl Edwards on the pole. All day long, they’d been fighting weather, and the race actually started with a green/yellow situation. A few laps in, the cars were finally released to race away.
