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.”
