Edwards on Richmond
“Richmond’s been a lot of fun lately. We’ve been fast there. Our short track program has been great. It’s the last race before the Chase so it’ll be an opportunity for us to go out and have some fun and work on fine tuning our team for the final ten races. A year ago we had a great race and a win there. Kellogg’s is always fun. I’m always proud to drive the Kellogg’s Ford. They’ve got such a great history in the sport. They’ve been great to me. Hopefully, we can get another win for them and have a good time.”
