Carl Edwards’ NASCAR career began in 2002 when he ran a handful of NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races for a team based in his home state of Missouri. His performance, however
was enough to catch the attention of Jack Roush who hired Edwards to drive one of his trucks for the full season in 2003. Edwards claimed rookie of the year honors and collected six wins during his two-year tenure in the truck series.
In 2004, Edwards got his chance in the Sprint Cup Series making his debut at Michigan International Speedway. He finished 10th in his first start and closed the season with 12 more starts. Edwards took on double duty in NASCAR’s top two elite series for the next seven years. He claimed rookie of the year honors in 2005 and captured the Nationwide Championship in 2007, while compiling 38 wins in the Nationwide series putting him forth on the all time win list. Edwards took home nine Sprint Cup wins in 2008 and tied Tony Stewart for the Championship in 2011, only to finish second in a tiebreaker determined by wins.
Edwards has 21 wins in the Sprint Cup Series and heads into 2014 with only one goal in mind, winning the 2014 Sprint Cup Series Championship.
