Sweep? | Carl Edwards Bristol Advance

Edwards on the Bristol:

“We are headed to the night race at Bristol. Probably one of the most, if not the most, exciting races of the year. We won there this spring which was a blast. Fastenal is on the car and it's a great opportunity for us to get them a win and get us another win before the Chase and get some bonus points. At the very least we'll just go there and have a good time. Last week was a big struggle for us, but the car had a lot of speed in qualifying so it looks like some of the work we've been doing is paying off.”
