Race day started with an official announcement that Carl Edwards would not return to Roush-Fenway Racing in 2015. It ended with that driver 15th in the standings as confirmation of how much this former powerhouse organization is struggling.
Roush-Fenway Racing has never been one of the top flat track teams but they have made progress in recent years. And while Edwards’ best flat track finish this year was an eighth at Phoenix, this result is the fifth time in six races he finished in the top 15. Jul 27 - 10:47 PM

Roush-Fenway Racing has reported that Carl Edwards will not return to the organization in 2015. The lineup for that team will include Greg Biffle, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., and Trevor Bayne.

Contract negotiations have been a distraction all year and now that it is official he will be moving, Edwards’ results will probably improve. Expect an announcement about where he will land in the coming days and speculation has centered on him joining Joe Gibbs Racing in a fourth entry.

Carl Edwards has been a consistent top-15 finisher for most of his Indy career and his recent record on flat tracks suggests he will probably repeat in that range in this year’s Crown Royal 400.

Eight of Edwards’ nine career attempts at Indy ended in results of 18th or better, but only one of these was a top-five. This year four of his five efforts on minimally-banked courses ended in a narrow band of results from eighth at Phoenix to 13th at Richmond and New Hampshire. Players can be relatively certain that he is going to finish in the high single digits or low teens this week and should plan accordingly.

The biggest topic of conversation surrounding Carl Edwards continues to be his contract negotiations and where he will race in 2015. Until that is resolved, consistent strong runs might be difficult to sustain.

Fantasy owners have to wonder how much of a distraction this has become. With the exception of his wild card win at Sonoma, Edwards has not scored a top-10 since Charlotte in May and during that span of races, he has regularly critiqued the weaknesses of Roush-Fenway Racing.

Carl Edwards finished 13th in the Camping World RV Sales 301, snapping a two-race, top-10 streak earned last year at New Hampshire Motor Speedway

Edwards remains a solid but unspectacular fantasy play on short, flat tracks. His 13th-place finish at New Hampshire kept alive a streak of four races on this track type with results ranging from eighth at Phoenix to 13th at Martinsville. He was also ninth at Richmond, which makes him a provisionally strong choice if he fits a niche on a fantasy owner’s roster.

For most of his career, Carl Edwards was not at his best on short, flat tracks but he has reversed that trend in the past two years to earn two wins and five more top-10s in his last 11 starts at Phoenix, New Hampshire, Richmond, and Martinsville.

In the first practice session for the Camping World RV Sales 301, Edwards expressed displeasure with his No. 99 Ford, however, and he has done a good job of informing fantasy players about his struggles. He should be moved to a mid-range pick to use only after marquee drivers have been exhausted.
