QUOTE WORTHY

 

Edwards quotes on the Coca-Cola 600

‚ÄúWe have a fast race car for the Coca-Cola 600. We qualified on the pole for the All-Star event, we feel confident that our car is fast enough to perform well and fortunately we learned a lot at the All-Star race. Obviously it‚Äôs one of the biggest races of the year but also special because of the Fastenal tribute paint schemes. All three of the Roush Fenway Racing Ford‚Äôs will be painted in Fastenal colors honoring our troops. We hope we can get one of them into victory lane. Fastenal has been a huge supporter of RFR and all veterans that they employ so we‚Äôre proud to be carrying this paint scheme. I love this race. It‚Äôs a test to all of the people, the driver, crew, engineers so it‚Äôs pretty grueling.‚ÄĚ
