Edwards quotes on the Sylvania 300
“We battled through Chicago, it wasn’t pretty but we’re fifth in points. We feel that New Hampshire is an opportunity for us to showcase our short track strength that we’ve shown at Phoenix and at Richmond this year. It’s a true home track for our team because of our Fenway partnership, and I feel like it’s going to be a very intense race. As always, track position is very important, the restarts are extremely tough at New Hampshire, and there’s door to door racing as close as any track that we race on. I think it’s an opportunity for us to separate ourselves from some more guys in the Chase and hopefully have the same success that we’ve had at Phoenix and Richmond.”
