Edwards quotes on the Quicken Loans 400
“Our Fastenal team is looking forward to Michigan. We get the opportunity to meet at Ford headquarters before we head to the racetrack. With Greg Biffle stepping up last week at Pocono, this race is an opportunity for us to turn our performance up. We have run well here and I love this track. It’s fast and wide and a fun place to race. I’d love to get Jack and Fastenal to victory lane in Michigan.”
