Edwards on the Daytona 500:
“We’ve got a really fast race car which is great. The guys worked really hard on our Fastenal Ford and we have increased our speed a lot since testing. I’m really excited about the race. Now we just have to make it through the Duels without tearing it up. I learned a lot in the Sprint Unlimited so hopefully we can get our first Daytona 500 victory together, me and Jimmy Fennig. That would be a lot of fun.”
