Edwards quotes on Dover
““Dover is the most physically demanding oval we go to,” stated Edwards. “It’s fast and if you have trouble, there’s nowhere to hide. We have run extremely well there as a company and I still smile when I remember Matt (Kenseth), Greg (Biffle) and I racing there for the win a few years ago. We plan on getting Subway their second win of the year on Sunday.”
