Carl Edwards Darlington Preview
May 5, 2010Carl Edwards – NNS ADVANCE
Team: No. 60 Copart/Fastenal Ford Fusion
Crew Chief: Drew Blickensderfer
Carl Edwards on racing at Darlington Raceway:
“We’ve run really well at Darlington before in the Nationwide cars. It’s a really fun track…it’s a lot of momentum with a lot of on throttle time that feels very fast. We’ve just got to go into the weekend working to get some points back. We ran alright in Richmond, but the 22 keeps stretching out the points lead and we can’t let them get too far ahead. I’m going to Darlington to win and get Copart and Fastenal in victory lane.”
Crew chief Drew Blickensderfer on racing at Darlington Raceway:
“The 60 Copart team is looking forward to getting back to Darlington where as an organization we run strong. We had a decent run last week coming from two weeks of bad luck. Still, it wasn’t enough to get us where we need to be. We need to hit the track with a lot of speed and work on having a great handling car all day. The Nationwide Series field is getting more competitive every week so we have to bring our best this weekend in Darlington.”
