CARL EDWARDS, No. 99 Fastenal Ford Fusion – TELL US WHAT YOU SAW. “I didn’t see anything. I should have been listening to my spotter Jason Hedleski because he said, ‘watch ‘em, watch ‘em’ about two seconds before this happened. I have the best spotter in the business in Jason and I just didn’t step on the brakes early enough. I don’t know exactly and Matt (Kenseth) probably had no clue that Regan (Smith) was underneath him. That one little beat and I hit Mark (Martin) and I thought I was clear and you will see Smith in front of me and he was sideways into the wall. It is pretty frustrating. The silver lining for us is that last year we came down here and we sat on the pole for the 500 and everything was cool and smooth and our year went terrible. Hopefully this is all our bad luck.”
WILL YOU HAVE TO GO TO A BACKUP AND THE OTHER ISSUE IS IT HAS BEEN HARD FOR THESE GUYS TO GET RACE CARS BUILT. “It is very hard for these guys to get race cars built. I feel like we have the best fab guys in the business. They work hard and put out a lot of cars that are really nice. They have already been down here and said that they can fix it and make this car like it was. Jimmy said not to worry about it and that we have the backup car, so we are going to bring that over and send this one back to Charlotte and they will get it ready to be a backup. I feel bad for my guys. They put so much work into these cars for me to wreck them in practice.”
