Edwards Snags Second Pole Award For AAA Texas 500

Fort Worth, Texas.  (November 2, 2013) – Carl Edwards, who carries the most Sprint Cup wins at Texas Motor Speedway, will look to carry his fourth win after snagging the pole in yesterday’s qualifying round in the No. 99 Aflac Ford.

“The guys have worked so hard. This is all about the guys,” said Edwards. “This was one of our tracks to test and the guys came out here and sat for days in the rain trying to get some laps in and finally we got to come out here the week after that and tested for three days and I think we were the last team to load up and go home. My guys put in a lot of hard work. I don’t think the lap was that spectacular from a driving standpoint and I messed up off turn two but turns three and four were great and we got the pole so that was a lot of fun. It is so neat to get a pole and the guys brought us to victory lane and we got to celebrate and that is a lot of fun. It is a big day for us.”

Edwards will start the No. 99 Aflac Ford from the front row at 3 p.m. EST with coverage of the AAA Texas 500 beginning at 2 p.m. EST on ESPN.
