QUOTE WORTHY

Edwards quotes on the Bojangles’Southern 500

“Darlington is the toughest oval we race on. It’s fast, it’s scary, you’ve got to pay attention for all 500 miles. Mentally and physically it’s one of the toughest race tracks we go to and it’s got a ton of history.  A win at Darlington would be one of the most gratifying wins for a driver. We’ve been very close there, we’ve run really well. I like the race track a lot and lately we’ve been really fast. I’m excited about going there, hopefully we get on the pole and win the race and continue the run in the points that we’ve had. It’s been a lot of fun lately; Jimmy and the guys have been great and we want to keep it ”
