From the Cockpit:
Carl Edwards: “We are coming off of a great race at Sonoma and headed to Daytona in the SUBWAY Toyota Camry for an opportunity to go to Victory Lane. I don’t have a Cup win there so it would be nice to get one of those. We’ve been really close. We have a great Superspeedway program. This weekend we celebrate America’s independence. It’s always a fun weekend for the fans. We’ve got SUBWAY on board. They’ve been an amazing partner and done a ton for the USO. The SUBWAY Firecracker 250 is on Friday and I’ll be watching that and cheering for our Joe Gibbs Racing teammates. Andon Saturday we’re going to try to get a trophy.”
From the Pit Box:
Dave Rogers: “There’s always an indescribable allure to racing at Daytona whether it’s in February or July. The Daytona 500 is “super-bowl” of our sport, but the 4th of July race is also of great significance. We have the opportunity to celebrate our country’s independence by doing what we love to do – racing automobiles at a fantastic sporting facility. SUBWAY has made this coming weekend even more special for us by teaming up with USO and supporting the troops that protect the freedoms we enjoy so much. We look forward to putting on a great show for our soldiers and fans alike.”
