Carl Edwards on racing at Richmond International Raceway:
“It’s been a pretty hectic week. But, my main focus now is Richmond and winning there. My Aflac team has been improving each week and I’m looking forward to a strong finish Saturday night.”
Crew chief Bob Osborne on racing at Richmond International Raceway:
“Like I said last week, drafting was the key to winning the race and we had a really good push there at the end and came down too hard and well, everyone knows what happened from there. I do know one thing though, we are very lucky no one was severely hurt. Carl is fine and after examining the car post-race I found the driver compartment was virtually un-damaged. All the safety precautions and preventative steps NASCAR enforces regarding driver safety really came through.
“Now, wrecking is just part of racing, and one thing you must have in this business to succeed is a short memory. With that being said, having a strong run at Richmond is my main focus this week. We haven’t had the best finishes there yet, but I hope to change that this weekend.”
