Carl Edwards posted the fastest lap in the final session of qualification. After posting a speed of 95.777 mph, he will lead the field to green on Sunday at Sonoma Raceway for the Toyota / Save Mart 350.

This is Edwards’ first front row start. Previously, he started on the second row in back-to-back race in 2013/2014. He finished top-three in both races; in fact, he won in 2014.

Carl Edwards started 11th and finished sixth in the FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway. He was more than five seconds behind the leader Joey Logano at the end, however.

Edwards did not make a lot of noise in the race, but he came on strong at the end of the event. He also finished sixth last August in the Pure Michigan 400 and this was his 17th top-10 on this track in 24 starts—an average of 71 percent.

Carl Edwards posted the fastest single lap in Saturday morning’s practice for the FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway with a speed of 197.770 mph.

With the exception of one bad year at the end of his Roush-Fenway Racing tenure, this has been a great track for Edwards and he should be on a majority of fantasy lineups.

Carl Edwards finished eighth in the Axalta 400 at Pocono Raceway to snap a four-race streak of races in which he finished outside the top 10. This was only the second time in the last five races that he finished on the lead lap.

Edwards had his momentum snapped at Talladega SuperSpeedway with a "Big One" crash. Now that his confidence is restored, the No. 19 team could be considered as a foundation for teams at Michigan International Speedway—a track that has been good to both the driver and Joe Gibbs Racing.

Carl Edwards was the fastest of 28 drivers that took time Friday morning before rain red flagged that session. His fastest speed was 179.802 mph.

Since only 28 drivers have taken time of 40 at the track, this session will not be eligible to set qualification later if weather stays in the area. If both sessions are rained out, owner points will set the grid.

Carl Edwards has the eighth-best Fantasy Power Rankings average during the first 12 weeks of the season with a 10.91. This is a formula that combines finishing positions, fantasy ranking in most major games, and time spent among the leaders.

Place-differential, laps led, and fastest laps are key components in many fantasy games, so these play a key role in the Fantasy Power Rankings formula. While finishing results are what matter most, it is not always indicative of a driver’s real strength.

Brad Keselowski posted one of the fastest laps in practice for the All-star race to be held Saturday night. His top speed of 192.027 was tied by Carl Edwards.

These drivers tied to the thousandth of a second, which give us an indication of what we will see in the race.

It turned out that the AAA 400 Drive for Autism at Dover was not a good time to start the front two rows. Kevin Harvick, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Kyle Busch were all consumed by a late-race accident triggered by Jimmie Johnson. It appeared Carl Edwards survived, but he was spun on the restart following that incident by an enthusiastic Kyle Larson.

Edwards slowed slightly and moved half a lane down the track to avoid Kurt Busch—who nearly slapped the wall with a loose car. Larson could feel victory in his grasp and did not lift, which is what the drivers mean when they talk about "one of those racin’ deals."

Carl Edwards posted the fourth-fastest time in the first practice session for the AAA 400 Drive for Autism and will line up in that position on Sunday. It will be the third consecutive race in which he started on one of the first four rows.

Edwards fell back to 19th from eighth in the spring and 15th from third in the fall last year, which cost fantasy owners a lot of place-differential points. He did not have nearly this much chemistry with the team on his side, however, and should be able to rebound with at least a top-10 finish this week.

Carl Edwards had been running on the lead lap for 28 consecutive races entering the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway. He sustained damage in two separate incidents on the restrictor-plate, superspeedway and not only failed to finish on the lead lap, he was not running at the end of the race.

Edwards was credited with a 35th-place finish after completing 109 laps. That was an ignominious end for the winner of the last two races this season, but he will dust off and head to Kansas Speedway with the rest of the field.

Carl Edwards caught Kyle Busch’s back bumper in turn four of the last lap of the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway and nudged him out of the way to take his second victory in a row. He won last week’s Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway from the pole.

In two weeks Edwards has gone from being eligible for the Chase on points, to being locked into the playoffs with multiple wins. He has also been one of the top fantasy values in every type of game. There is no substitute for momentum. This was the first time in history that a last lap pass has been made to win at Richmond.

Carl Edwards has earned the second-most points in the Draft Kings game with an average of 77.25 points during the six most recent races.

Edwards has been a similarly good value in most fantasy NASCAR games and shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon. He is the best place-and-hold driver in the field for now.

There are two ways to know when a driver dominates a race. Carl Edwards led 276 of the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway and recorded an average running position of 1.95.

Kevin Harvick had an average running position of 3.9, but the next closest competitors were outside the top 10 on average. That made Edwards a "must-have" on most rosters.

Carl Edwards led 276 of 500 laps to dominate the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway. It is his first victory of the season and his fourth on this track.

Edwards’ last victory on this track came in spring 2014 after he started 12th. He also won in spring 2009 after leading the field to green. Joe Gibbs Racing appeared dominant in practice, but Edwards was the only driver who survived tire problems.
