Edwards quotes on the Aaron’s 499
“We’ve got the Fastenal Ford at Talladega and it’s been a track where we’ve had some really good days and some bad days, so I’m hoping for a great day. We’d love to get our first superspeedway win as a team. Jimmy Fennig was able to win two of these speedway races with Matt Kenseth last year, so I feel like I have the best guy on the box that I could have. We’ve got a fast race car, our mission is to be there on the last lap in position to win. The Gen-^ car has provided some serious pack racing at these speedway races so I think it’s going to be tougher than ever. As long as we don’t wreck five cars like we did in Daytona I think it will be a success. We want to come out of there in a good spot in points, second is nice and we don’t want to fall any lower than that.”
