Today’s Race Report with John Williams

My profile this week is truly one of the gentlemen in the world of  motorsports racing, but also one of the very best..

 

Carl Edwards is a Missouri native, driving the No. 19 Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing, in the midst of his 12th full-time season in the Sprint Cup Series and his career has been marked by consistent success..

 

Carl broke into Nascar in the Camping World Truck Series, winning Rookie of the Year and has 6 truck wins to his credit..that was followed up with 2 Xfinity Championships and he currently is 4th all time with 38 wins in that series…

 

And since beginning his Cup career full-time with Rousch Fenway Racing in 2005, garnering 4 wins in his rookie season, Edwards has been one of the most consistently successful performers with 26 wins overall, including last weekend at Bristol..

 

Edwards has qualified 9 times for the Chase in his 11 years as a cup driver & barely missed out on his first championship in 2011, tying for the points lead & losing that tiebreaker to Tony Stewart in overall wins…
