QUOTE WORTHY

Edwards quotes on the STP 400

“There would be nothing better than winning in Kansas. That race track means a lot to me.  Our team tested there a couple weeks ago.  It went pretty well, but it was only our team, so we really don’t know how we stack up, but it’s lightning fast.  I think we were 207 or 209 miles an hour at the end of the straightaway there at Kansas, which was really good and really fast.  I’m excited to go back there.  It’s amazing how much that area has built up and how much is going on there.  It’s a neat place and I’ve got a lot of family and friends coming, so that would be huge to win there in the Aflac Ford.”
