Found March 08, 2013 on Start 'N' Park Blog:
Another week down, and another week of NASCAR racing is upon us race fans!  Phoenix turned out to be an eventful race in the closing laps, but now the Nationwide Series and the Sprint Cup Series head to Las Vegas Motor Speedway for some high-speed racing on the 1.5 mile track. The Start ‘N’ Park Blog will actually be in Las Vegas covering the races this weekend!  Our own Michael Metzger and Brittany Snyder will be at the track all weekend long, so please check back regularly throughout the weekend. Here are some things that I have on my mind as we head into Las Vegas! Edwards Back In Victory Lane Carl Edwards ended his 70-race winless streak by holding off Jimmie Johnson, defending Cup champ Brad Kesolowski, and Denny Hamlin to win the Subway Fresh-Fit 500 at Phoenix International Raceway on Sunday.  Edward’s hasn’t won a Sprint Cup Series race since 2011. Its good to see Carl Edwards get back to Victory Lane.  Its always entertaining to see Edwards do his trademark backflip.  Edwards has struggled a ton since the end of the 2011 season, so if this win is any indication, Carl might be back in business. Gen 6: Give it a Chance The Gen-6 race car has only run in 2 races this season and already people are not liking the style of racing that is occurring on the race track.   There is not a whole lot of passing occurring, and people are starting to get fed up apparently.  With that, I want to let those people know that its ONLY BEEN TWO RACES.  It took awhile for drivers and teams to get accustomed to the COT both car and setup wise, so really it will take time before every bug in this new car gets ironed out. You can’t expect these cars to be picture-perfect by the first two races. I have a lot of faith in NASCAR to get the bugs worked out in the Gen 6 car.  This is the car that the fans have been wanting for years. Unfortunately, thats all the thoughts I have regarding the weeks races.  Enjoy the races this weekend (including tommorrow night’s Start ‘N’ Park Blog 400 over at NuffWORLD Gaming) and as usual… “Thats my opinion, Whats Yours”.

Carl Edwards: I feel like I'm going to Vegas to win

Can Carl Edwards repeat the back flip at Vegas? He thinks so. Call it frustration if you will, but Carl Edwards basically called his shot on a win a Phoenix after wrecking at Daytona. Today, Edwards showed more of the confident swagger he exhibited at Daytona, letting everyone know he expects to battle for the win at Vegas this Sunday."I know this is probably wrong to admit...
