Reutimann steers way to second career win

JOLIET, Ill. (AP) -- David Reutimann blew by Jeff Gordon and cruised to the victory in the Sprint Cup race Saturday at Chicagoland Speedway.

Carl Edwards made a charge in the closing laps, cutting Reutimann's lead to less than a second, but he couldn't get close enough and finished second Saturday night.

Gordon grabbed third, followed by Clint Bowyer and Jamie McMurray.

It was the second career victory for Reutimann, who also won at Charlotte in May 2009. And it was a relief for a driver who'd been robbed of a few potential good finishes because of engine problems earlier in the season.
