Roush Fenway Front Row at Bristol

-

Carl Edwards was fastest in the  first practice session on Friday and backup it up by capturing the pole for Sunday’s Jeff Byrd 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway with a lap of 128.014mph (14.989secs).

[media-credit name=”Barry Albert” align=”alignright” width=”300″][/media-credit]“It’s unreal. I sure hope it keeps going. This is a lot of fun. The guys at the shop have done a great job on this Scotts EZ Seed Ford Fusion. Greg (Biffle) motivated me, as I didn’t think he would get that fast of a lap. I could not hear (crew chief) Bob (Osborne) on the radio so I thought I must be slow on the first lap and I drove my guts out on the second lap. Finally I saw the board. Just really happy, this is really cool.” Edwards said.

Alongside Edwards is teammate Greg Biffle, then Regan Smith starts third, Paul Menard fourth and teammate David Ragan qualified fifth.

“My car was really fast. I probably should have got the gas down a little bit sooner, but woulda, shoulda, coulda. I’ve got a really fast car and I’m really happy. The guys worked hard. It looks like we’ve come back from our incident at Las Vegas and we’re gonna have a good run.” Biffle said of his qualifying run.

“We’ve had really fast cars. I can’t say enough about our UPS team and Ford Racing and Roush Fenway. We’ve had great cars the first three or four races and circumstances have kind of gotten us, but we’ve got a lot of momentum on our side. I feel like our cars are fast and Bristol is so much fun. When we can come here, unload and have a decent car on Friday, that certainly makes for a lot more fun weekend.” Regan said.
