Carl Edwards and Kurt Busch will need to acquire charters from Michael Waltrip Racing to have one of NASCAR’s guaranteed 36 positions, according to NBC’s Dustin Long.
NASCAR has offered charters to teams that have run all of the full seasons since 2013 and both the No. 19 and 41 teams have not. Unless something strange occurs, however, look for them to be locked into the field soon. Feb 9 - 2:53 PM

From the time he finished third in the May 2013 Talladega SuperSpeedway race until last year’s fifth on that same track in the fall, Carl Edwards failed to crack the top 15 a single time in nine starts. That has contributed to an average finish of only 20.53 on the combined plate tracks.

Restrictor-plate, superspeedways are notoriously volatile, however, and Edwards ranks 16th among active drivers on this track type. He won’t be the worst option for the Daytona 500, but he will not be the best either.

Sport Clips Racing is excited to enter its eighth season (2016) as a partner with Joe Gibbs Racing and driver Carl Edwards.

Carl Edwards completed his first year with Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) in 2015 driving the No. 19 Toyota Camry in the Sprint Cup Series, finishing the year by qualifying for his ninth Sprint Cup Series Chase. He scored two wins for Toyota and JGR, celebrating victories in two of NASCAR’s crown jewels, the Coca-Cola 600 and the Southern 500. His impressive resume in NASCAR’s top Series now includes 25 Sprint Cup victories, 115 top fives, 202 top 10’s, and 16 poles. Edwards nearly claimed his first Sprint Cup championship in 2011, tying for first in points, but losing in the tiebreaker based on number of wins.-Sport Clips Racing

Joe Gibbs Racing’s Carl Edwards and Denny Hamlin will have new crew chiefs next year, according to NBC’s Daniel McFadin. Edwards will work with Dave Rogers with Mike Wheeler returning to Hamlin’s team.

Rogers moves from Hamlin’s team last year and previously worked with Kyle Busch. He has 15 Sprint Cup victories to his credit. Wheeler moves from the No. 20 XFINITY team where he worked with Hamlin in many races. Chemistry is tricky between crew chiefs and drivers, so watch both Edwards and Hamlin closely at the start of the season.

According to Motorsport.com, Darian Grubb will no longer oversee the No. 19 Arris/Stanley Tools Toyota driven by Carl Edwards.

Dave Rogers, who is currently crew chief for the No. 11 Fed Ex team and Denny Hamlin, is expected to move into the role. With Rogers taking over the No. 19 team, Mike Wheeler is expected to be named crew chief of the No. 11 crew and Hamlin. "Wheels" was Hamlin’s race engineer on the No. 11 team and even filled in for Grubb for one event before he was promoted to crew chief of the No. 20 XFINITY Series team at Joe Gibbs Racing. Grubb's future with the JGR organization has yet to be determined.-Motorsports.com

Carl Edwards (#19 ARRIS Toyota Camry) finished 11th in the November 22nd NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season-ending Ford EcoBoost 400 at Florida's Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The Joe Gibbs Racing driver started seventh in the lineup and completed all laps of the 267-lap event (led eight laps). Edwards, who competed in all of the season's 36 races, scored two wins (Charlotte on May 24th and Darlington on September 6th), three poles, seven top-fives, 15 top-10s and closed out the season fifth in the final 2015 Sprint Cup Series driver championship standings.

Carl Edwards posted the fastest single lap in the rain-shortened first practice session for the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead with a speed of 175.143 mph.

Edwards failed to advance from the Eliminator round into the Championship finale, but he has pride on the line this week. He won the 2008 and 2010 races on this track, but his last three efforts have all ended outside the top 10. That may cause the competition to overlook him and could make him a great differentiator.

Carl Edwards is on pace to score a top-five this week at Phoenix International Raceway in the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500. He qualified fourth for Sunday’s race and has the third-quickest, 10-lap average among 28 cars in Saturday morning’s session among those went that far.

Edwards would like to win this week, but he could also get into the final four with a solid run. He is on pace to finish in the top-five and will look for his opportunity to slip into Victory Lane if possible.

Carl Edwards finished fifth in the AAA Texas 500, but he still sits seven points outside of the cutoff mark and needs to finish that many positions ahead of Martin Truex Jr. or 17 spots ahead of Kevin Harvick—or of course, win at Phoenix International Raceway—in order to advance to the final round of the Chase.

Edwards finished 14th last week at Martinsville Speedway and while that was not bad for fantasy owners, the four drivers who advance to Homestead-Miami Speedway in Chase contention will almost certainly have swept the top 10.

Carl Edwards has been looking for speed throughout practice at Martinsville Speedway. He posted only the 17th fastest time in the first practice session on Friday, qualified 14th, and was 20th fastest in practice 2 for the Goody's 500.

Halfway through final practice, Edwards was 17th on the chart. He is going to need to use strategy to finish in the top 15, but this race is liable to put him in a hole for the Eliminator round. Fantasy owners should start a different marquee driver.

Carl Edwards finished fifth in the CampingWorld.com 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway and completed a sweep of the top five among current Chase contenders. Along with Joey Logano, Jeff Gordon, and Brad Keselowski he earned enough points to advance to the Eliminator round.

Edwards entered the race fourth in the points’ standings and needed only a strong finish to advance. He did not lead a lap on Sunday, but was never in serious jeopardy of dropping out of contention. This was Edwards’ 15th consecutive top-15 this season and confirms his status as a favorite fantasy pick.

Carl Edwards will probably choose to run a conservative race at Talladega SuperSpeedway this weekend in the CampingWorld.com 500 as a way to protect his position in the points. He has not scored a top-15 in his last nine plate track attempts.

In more than half of those races, Edwards sustained crash damage and that is the major obstacle he faces in regard to advancing to the next round of the Chase. Edwards will probably look for a safe place to run and only move forward in the final laps. That will make him a poor value in games that award points for average running position or driver rating.

Carl Edwards finished eighth in the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway. This was his 14th consecutive top-15 dating back to a fourth on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile Kentucky Speedway.

Back-to-back top-10s have Edwards fourth in the standings. Under normal circumstances he would be a lock to finish in the top 15 again, but Talladega SuperSpeedway is not a respecter of streaks.
Sun, Oct 18, 2015 09:44:00 PM

Carl Edwards will line up on the outside pole for the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway with a speed of 195.454 mph.

Edwards is peaking at the right time and should be considered one of the best fantasy values in the game at the moment.

Carl Edwards got into Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s left rear quarter panel early in the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Junior slapped the wall, but Edwards was unscathed and finished the race sixth.

The contact certainly could have been worse. Later in the afternoon a confrontation between Ryan Newman and Matt Kenseth resulted in both drivers being wounded. These accidents between Chase contenders underscore just how important they believe it is to have strong runs before the Talladega SuperSpeedway race.
