Team: No. 99 Fastenal Ford Fusion Crew Chief: Jimmy Fennig Primary Chassis: RK- 821 last ran at Auto Club Speedway Backup Chassis: RK – 831 backup car brought to Darlington Edwards at Charlotte: Carl Edwards will make his eighth appearance in the Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway this weekend. In his previous starts he has one win, three top-five and four top-10 finishes. A Little History: Roush Fenway Racing has won four NASCAR Sprint Cup Series All-Star races. Mark Martin won the event in 1998 and 2005, Matt Kenseth took the checkered flag in 2004 and Carl Edwards in 2011. The Car: The No. 99 team will unload RK-821 which last ran at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA. Primary Sponsor Note: Fastenal returns to the track in their primary paint scheme featuring suppliers GearWrench, Greenfield Industries, Port-a-cool and Blackstone on the hood, TV panel, deck-lid and B-post. Edwards quotes on the Sprint All-Star Race: “Two million dollars is a lot of money, we would definitely like to win all the segments and win the race. The All-Star win a couple of years ago was one of the neatest wins of my life. I’ve watched the All-Star race on television since I was a little kid, seen all the amazing finishes, the crazy circumstances, all the emotion and chaos that goes on around that event, it’s really an honor to be a part of it now as a driver. We’ve been working very hard on our car, on our strategy and I’m really excited to go run the race. We had a really great test there; our Fords have been fast at this style of race track so I think it’s going to be good. And if I win I’m not going to tear up my car in the grass, I promise you that: I’d like to get that right; I’d like to get a proper slide through the grass without hurting my car.”
