Team: No. 60 Fastenal Ford Fusion
Crew Chief: Drew Blickensderfer
Carl Edwards on racing at Talladega Superspeedway:
“We’re coming back to Talladega this year with the same car that David Ragan won in last year. I feel very good about our chances Saturday in the Nationwide race. The guys have been working very hard on the car back in the shop and they are excited about it. We’ll just go to Talladega and try to stay out of trouble and hopefully gain some points back. We had terrible luck at Texas and we want to dig back from that.”
Crew chief Drew Blickensderfer on racing at Talladega Superspeedway:
“We are taking RK-236 to Talladega, the same car that we ran in Daytona this year and have won at this track before. It has been massaged and adjusted since then and I feel really good about the setup. We started out with a great run last week and then had some bad luck at the end. We just need to keep the chemistry going and work hard to get into victory lane.”
