Edwards on Vegas:
“We had an extremely fast car in Phoenix. We’ve been working very hard on our mile and a half program and I’m excited to go to Vegas. We have got the test day which should be good. Hopefully we can build on this good run and have some fun and get our first win of the season. If we had qualified better at Phoenix I think that we would have been really good, so that says a lot about our team.”
