Team: No. 99 Fastenal Ford Fusion Crew Chief: Jimmy Fennig Primary Chassis: RK- 835 which last ran in the Budweiser Duels Backup Chassis:RK – 829 backup which last ran as the primary for the Sprint Unlimited Edwards at Talladega: In his previous 17 starts at Talladega, Edwards has one top-five and four top-10 finishes. Edwards’ average start at Talladega is 14.9, his average finish is 21.8. Edwards has completed 88.4 percent of his laps attempted at Talladega, and led 25 laps. In the Loop: According to NASCAR’s Loop Statistics compiled over the last 19 races at Talladega, Edwards has turned 61 of the fastest laps at Talladega Superspeedway. The Car: The No. 99 Fastenal Blue Team will unload RK-835 for the weekend which last ran in the Budweiser Duels in Daytona. Primary Sponsor Note: Fastenal returns to the track with Lenox, Milwaukee, Panduit and Louisville suppliers on the hoot, TV panel, deck lid and B-post. 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.”
