QUOTES

Carl Edwards on racing at Nashville Superspeedway:
"Going to Nashville Superspeedway this weekend for the Nationwide Series and Easter should be lots of fun.  Our Cars have been running very strong as of late and we have had a lot of success there.  We had a string of wins on the 1.33-mile concrete oval and the Sam Bass Gibson guitar is just an awesome trophy.  Sprint Cup is off and our main goal is to come away with a win for our Ford "Drive One" team."

Crew chief Mike Beam on racing at Nashville Superspeedway:

“Carl has had a lot of success at Nashville. Our Mustangs have been super strong at every track we have been to this year.  Nashville is a tough track to tame.  It is one of three tracks we go to that has a concrete surface and can be extremely tough on our braking system. We hope to get this Ford Mustang back to Victory Lane and bring home the Gibson guitar trophy.”
