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. Apr 24 - 4:29 PM

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.

Carl Edwards posted a lap of 127.997 mph in the final round of qualification for the Food City 500 and won the pole at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Last year, both pole sitters at Bristol finished in the top 10. Denny Hamlin finished third in the fall while Matt Kenseth won from the top spot last spring. Notably, Kenseth was the only top-10 starter last spring who finished in the top 10. Most of the other drivers sustained crash damage of some sort, which means a driver is never out of trouble on this track.

Carl Edwards has qualified third in his last three Bristol Motor Speedway attempts. Two of these starts ended with a lucky-seventh-place finish.

Edwards was even "luckier" in spring 2012. Driving for Jack Roush at the time, he started 12th and earned this third Bristol victory. That win snapped a four-race streak of Bristol races in which he failed to complete all the laps.

Last week, Carl Edwards lost a lap last week at Martinsville Speedway because he had the wrong setup. At Texas Motor Speedway in the Duck Commander 500, a mistake in the pits caused him to come back for service under green and lose another lap. He got a Free Pass late in the going, and rambled to a seventh-place finish.

Determination goes a long way in NASCAR, but eventually Edwards is going to be unable to regain the top positions. Until then, ride his bandwagon until he loses a wheel.

Carl Edwards posted the fastest lap in the final round of qualification for the Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway. His top speed was 194.609 mph.

This is Edwards’ 17th career pole and his second at Texas. He hopes this pole is a better omen than the one he scored in fall 2013 on this track. In that year’s AAA Texas 500, he blew an engine and finished 37th. Edwards’ most recent pole on another track came last fall at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He finished fifth in the Sylvania 300.

Carl Edwards faded in the first half of the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway and lost a lap early. He battled for the "Free Pass" position, was finally given the wave around with a little more than 100 laps remaining, and battled back to sixth in the final rundown.

Edwards told reporters after the race that the team just missed the setup at the start, but there was enough adjustability in it that he could recover. This is the fifth time in the first six races of the season that Edwards finished seventh or better.
Apr 3 - 6:36 PM

Kevin Harvick and Carl Edwards were notably slow in the final practice session for the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway. Harvick posted a lap of 94.775 mph with Edwards clocking in at 94.746, ranking them 21st and 22nd respectively.

Race conditions are often different, but both of these drivers could struggle to finish in the top 10 on Sunday. At their price range in most games, they cannot be considered ‘must-haves.’
Apr 2 - 2:06 PM

Carl Edwards finished seventh in the Auto Club 400, which was his fourth top-10 in five races this year.

The only time he failed to finish in the top 10 was at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and that was partly because of crash damage. This team is showing a lot more poise at the beginning of 2016 than they did in 2015.
Mar 20 - 8:35 PM

Matt Kenseth posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Auto Club 400. His top speed was 185.419 mph.

Kenseth’s fast speed was confirmed by his teammate Carl Edwards posting the second-fastest time. Kenseth has struggled lately, but it may be time to start thinking of him as a dark horse for a top-five.
Mar 19 - 3:45 PM

Carl Edwards posted the fastest single lap in Saturday morning’s practice session. His top speed was 187.906 mph.

Edwards rolls off the grid fifth this week. Reinforced by the fast practice and the recent momentum on Joe Gibbs Racing, the No. 19 is favored to finish somewhere around fifth.
Mar 19 - 12:17 PM

Carl Edwards started second and finished second in the Good Sam 500 and for want of a slightly harder bump on the final restart, he might have won.

Edwards lined up beside his Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Kyle Busch and raced with the leaders all afternoon. Busch and Denny Hamlin stumbled at points during the race, but they finished in a clump second, third, and fourth.
Mar 13 - 8:33 PM

Carl Edwards posted the second-quickest 10-lap average in the Saturday morning practice session for the Good Sam 500. His average speed of 135.440 mph was posted early in his run.

Edwards rolls off the grid to the outside of teammate Kyle Busch and was part of the Joe Gibbs Racing juggernaut. This organization has shown remarkable improvement since this time last year and will challenge Stewart-Haas Racing for the win.
