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 Dec 4 - 9:41 PM

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.
Nov 12 - 11:19 AM

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.
Nov 10 - 10:24 AM

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.
Nov 8 - 3:21 PM

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.
Nov 3 - 10:06 AM

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.
Nov 1 - 11:54 AM

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.
Oct 30 - 6:17 PM

Carl Edwards has been searching for speed in the early sessions of practice for the Goody's 500. He posted only the 26th fastest single lap in Saturday morning’s practice and was 19th of 34 drivers who posted 10 or more laps.

Edwards is happy with his car and that might be encouraging to his fans. It is not a very high recommendation to start him, however.
Oct 25 - 12:19 PM

Carl Edwards finished eighth in the Bank of America 500 and currently has a 20-point cushion over the elimination bubble. That keeps his Chase hopes alive and gives him an average finish of eighth in his last three races this season.

Twenty points is not enough of a cushion if he is the only vulnerable Chaser involved in a "Big One" crash at Talladega, but if a multi-car incident effects several of those drivers it could give the team some breathing room to make repairs.
Oct 12 - 11:05 AM

Carl Edwards earned his first top-five in five races when he crossed under the checkers fifth in the Hollywood Casino 400 and that elevated him to third in the Chase standings.

After finishing fifth at Atlanta—another similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track—he fell to 22nd at Richmond, but has slowly made his way back toward the front of the pack. Each of his last four races has been better than the one that preceded and that is good news for his Chase hopes.
Oct 5 - 8:28 PM

Carl Edwards is seeking his first top-10 since finishing fifth in the Oral-B 500 at Atlanta. He came close last week with an 11th at Dover.

Edwards’ results have been a little erratic this season because his other recent result on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track was a 20th at Chicagoland. He qualified 12th for the Hollywood Casino 400 and could go either way in race trim, which makes him a risky proposition.
Oct 4 - 9:53 AM

Carl Edwards has not earned a top-10 in the Cup series in four races, but he came close at Dover. His 11th-place finish in the AAA 400 was the second consecutive week in which he finished on the lead lap.

Edwards was one of the drivers who put his Chase hopes in jeopardy at Chicagoland and New Hampshire with a 20th- and 17th-place finish respectively. He cannot afford to get off to an equally slow start in the next two races on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks because he has been crash prone at Talladega during his career.
Sep 29 - 1:13 PM

Carl Edwards entered last spring’s FedEx 400 at Dover with five results of eighth or better in his previous six attempts. He finished only 14th that afternoon and has not scored a top-10 on this track since.

Along with a 26th in the spring 2012 race, Edwards has two sub-25th-place results at Dover in his last five attempts there. He is on the cusp of making or missing the Contender round and fantasy players should probably wait until Kansas before giving him a place on their roster.
Sep 24 - 4:01 PM

For the third consecutive week, Carl Edwards finished outside the top 15 in a NASCAR Cup race. He was 17th in the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire.

After scoring a 20th at Chicagoland, another result in that same range might allow him to advance to the Contender round, but until he begins finishing in the top 15 with some regularity he will not be a very good fantasy value.
