"The Brickyard is the most famous racetrack on earth" | Carl Edwards Indy Advance

Edwards on the Brickyard:

“The Brickyard is the most famous racetrack on earth.  It’s hallowed ground and just to be able to drive on the track is very special.  We have been very close to winning at the Brickyard; we have qualified well and finished second there in 2008.  I know for all the guys on the team this would be one of, if not the biggest race we could win of the year.  Hopefully we can get the car set up right.  It is a rectangular track and not a true oval with four distinct corners, very tough to pass, takes a lot of focus, the speeds are very high and qualifying is very important.  If we can get the whole package together we can get our Fastenal Ford in victory lane.  It would be huge"
