Edwards on Phoenix
“Phoenix is one of my favorite race tracks. It’s the first place I ever raced a pavement race in USAC Silver Crown Series. I love going out there. We somehow fought and clawed our way to a top ten finish at Texas, which is what we needed to do. There’s no better place for us to go than Phoenix to lock ourselves into the final round. I’m excited about it. We’ve got Fastenal on board. We hope to go out there and perform the way we know we can. and move on to Homestead where we had a good test the other day. I’m really proud of my whole team and everyone at Roush Fenway Racing for all their hard work and for getting us to this point in the season. This is the most fun stuff you can do as a racecar driver is to go to the race track and have all the pressure and the excitement of a championship battle.”
