Carl Edwards NNS Preview - Phoenix
April 8, 2010QUOTES
Carl Edwards on racing at Phoenix International Raceway:
“I love racing Nationwide cars at Phoenix. The track is perfectly suited for the racecars and we’ve run very well there in the past. We have collected a number of wins including last fall. It will be a lot of fun having Copart back on the car. I’m leading the points, while we’ve got a great points battle going on…Brad is doing a really great job right now. I just look forward to coming out with a win and hopefully a bigger points lead.”
Crew chief Drew Blickensderfer on racing at Phoenix International Raceway:
“Our Copart Ford Fusion will be very fast and I am confident that we can run in the front all night. Carl had a great run here in the fall and has a great average finish at this speedway. We just need to have consistent pit stops and take care of our equipment. This race will be extremely important to the team in keeping our points lead.”
