From the Cockpit:
Carl Edwards:
”We are taking our ARRIS Camry to Michigan this weekend. It’s the site of my first Sprint Cup race ever and it is a very special place to me. I have a lot of friends in that area. Mr. Thrasher whose name was on our car for the Coca-Cola 600 win has family near that track. It’s always been a real good track to me as a driver. It’s fast, wide and with this new package no one really knows what to expect. I’m excited for the possibility that this new package will get the grooves spread out in the corners and allow us to race close together. I think all of us have our fingers crossed. We also are focused on the Chase these next few races, Michigan included. It gives us a chance to practice and work on some things that will hopefully help us during the ten race stretch to determine the champion. I really am proud to have ARRIS back on our Toyota; they have been a huge part of our team this year and it would be pretty cool to put them in victory lane.”
