Carl Edwards Bristol Advance

“Bristol has been a really great race track for me and our whole Roush Fenway group. We’ve had a lot of fun there and we have a lot of wins in the Truck, Nationwide and Cup series. I had the chance to go out there earlier this season and talk to the folks at Bristol. They have got a lot of exciting things going on. The new qualifying format is going to be insane. I would say, as a fan, definitely tune into that. I think that we have got to go to Bristol and run like we ran in our previous race there. We were fast and we ended up having a little bit of mechanical trouble but we were leading the race and having a blast. We would like to pick up where we left off and go get a win for Kellogg’s, Cheez-It and Frosted Flakes. We need to put ourselves in the Chase just like these other three guys have already this season. “ Edwards
