Carl Edwards posted the second-quickest 10-lap average in final practice for the Toyota Owners 400. His top speed was 122.181 mph during his first 10 laps on track.
Speed has not been an issue for Edwards all season. He has put himself in dangerous spots by trying too hard to establish the No. 19 as a car to beat. Unfortunately, that intangible is not one that can be factored into a handicapping formula. Apr 24 - 4:19 PM

Carl Edwards had his best run of the 2015 season going at Bristol until he got loose under Jeff Gordon with five laps remaining in regulation. He slapped the wall and was collected by Kurt Busch to sustain significant damage. He was running at the end, but lost four laps and finished 24th.

Edwards has been his own biggest critic, saying that he is trying too hard. This is one more example of that and cautious fantasy owners might wish to wait until he finds the right balance of aggression and control.

Carl Edwards finally got his elusive first top-10 of the season with a 10th in the Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.

His final top-10 of 2014 also came on this track last fall when he finished ninth in the AAA Texas 500. Now that he has broken the barrier, fantasy players can expect many more to follow.

Carl Edwards is still searching to find a rhythm with his new team. In six starts this season, he has not yet earned a single top-10.

Edwards finished 12th at Atlanta and then 13th in back-to-back races at Phoenix and Auto Club. He has been qualifying better than he finished with negative place differentials in five of six races this year and that makes him an even more questionable value.

Carl Edwards got loose off turn four and slammed the outside wall with less than five minutes remaining in the first practice session. He will be forced to roll out a backup car.

If the team changes their engine and uses the primary, Edwards will be able to hang onto his starting position. Watch him closely in Saturday’s practice to see if the backup car has the same speed as his primary. Edwards was 11th on the speed chart at the time of the incident.

Carl Edwards earned his best career finish in the Sprint Unlimited with his third-place Saturday night. His previous best result was a seventh in the 2009 edition of this race.

In his first official appearance in a Joe Gibbs Racing car, he got off to a strong start. If the organization can keep their momentum, he could be one of the most pleasant surprises in the Daytona 500.

In eight previous Sprint Unlimited appearances, Carl Edwards has recorded a best finish of seventh in 2009. With a new team, he hopes to get his first top-five on Saturday night.

Since finishing seventh in 2009, Edwards has been eliminated from the race three times in five starts and he can be a little crash prone on restrictor-plate, superspeedways. Players might wish to cheer for him from a distance.

Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) announces today crew chief assignments for each of its four 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

JGR's 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Crew Chief lineup: Jason Ratcliff, No 20 Toyota driven by Matt Kenseth; Dave Rogers, No. 11 Toyota driven by Denny Hamlin; Darian Grubb, No. 19 Toyota driven by Carl Edwards and Adam Stevens, No. 18 Toyota driven by Kyle Busch. Said J.D. Gibbs, president of Joe Gibbs Racing. "Like Jason and Dave previously, Adam (Stevens) has clearly proven that he is ready to move into the Cup Series and we feel that his familiarity with Kyle (Busch) provides the opportunity for us to make that move now. We think pairing Dave (Rogers) with Denny (Hamlin) and Darian (Grubb) with Carl (Edwards) will also make each team stronger heading into next season. Jason (Ratcliff) and Matt (Kenseth) came together quickly and we felt it was in the best interest of the 20 team to keep it as is.-Joe Gibbs Racing

Goodyear officials have schedule a tire test for Tuesday and Wednesday, Dec. 9-10 at the 1.5-mile Charlotte Motor Speedway, with representatives from each of the three auto manufacturers scheduled to participate.

Slated to take part in the test are drivers Dale Earnhardt Jr. (Hendrick Motorsports No. 88 Chevrolet), Sam Hornish Jr. (Richard Petty Motorsports No. 9 Ford) and Carl Edwards (Joe Gibbs Racing No. 19 Toyota). One of three Chevrolet entries from Richard Childress Racing (Austin Dillon, Paul Menard or Ryan Newman) will participate as well. It will be the first official on-track effort for Edwards since the 35-year-old departed Roush Fenway Racing to join JGR. He will be working with a yet to be officially announced new crew chief.-NASCAR.com

Carl Edwards has the best overall record at Homestead and could be one of this week’s sleepers to win the Ford EcoBoost 400. He has never finished outside the top 15 and 70 percent of his starts ended in top-10s.

After getting eliminated from playoff contention last week, Edwards will be highly motivated to play the role of spoiler at Homestead and he wants to end his Roush-Fenway Racing career on a high note.

Carl Edwards has been one of the more consistent drivers in recent weeks and he scored another top-20 at Phoenix. He was 15th when the checkers waved over the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500k.

During the Chase, his worst effort was a 21st, but an average finish of 14.7 during the Eliminator round was not nearly strong enough to get him into the top four. Look for another top-20 at Homestead and plan accordingly.

Carl Edwards has earned three top-10s in the last seven races at Phoenix and that has improved his average finish to 12.6 in that span.

Edwards won the 2013 Subway Fresh Fit 500k and finished second on one other occasion, but his lack of consistency makes him a difficult addition to most fantasy rosters.

Along with second-place Kevin Harvick and third-place Brad Keselowski, Carl Edwards was a beneficiary of the topsy-turvy AAA Texas 500. His ninth-place finish brought him to within one point of the elimination bubble. The difference between first in the points and eighth currently stands at 19 points.

That could be extremely important if another non-Chase driver wins next week at Phoenix. Edwards has struggled on other short, flat tracks, but always seems to perform much better on this one-mile oval.

Carl Edwards posted the fastest single lap in the second practice session for the AAA Texas 500. His top lap was a 196.342 mph.

Visually Edwards appeared to be loose for most of the session, but loose is fast. Edwards needs a solid run if not a victory to advance to the next round of the playoffs, but he should not be considered a favorite to finish in the top five unless he backs up this speed with an equally impressive 10-lap average in final practice.

Carl Edwards has a nine-race, top-20 streak on this track type with all but three of those results ending in top-10s.

Unfortunately, the Duck Commander 500 at Texas was not one of the races in which he finished among the top 10. He was 14th in that event and needs to improve in order to climb out of the points’ hole that 20th-place finish at Martinsville created.
