Edwards quotes on the STP Gas Booster 500 “I am late a lot, so I think it would do everyone around me a big favor if I was to put our Fastenal
Ford in Victory Lane at Martinsville and take home the Grandfather clock. We have had a few good runs there, but for the most part, we have struggled. It would be huge for me personally to get a win there”.
