From the Cockpit:
Carl Edwards:
“We are ; it’s pure driving, left, right, using all the gears, managing the tires, and pit strategy comes in to play. This is a tough race and it’s also one of the most physically demanding races. It’s mentally-tasking. For all those reasons it was a blast to win there last year. Hopefully, we can come out there and defend our race win from last year which was really one of the coolest wins I have ever had. We come out there and represent Stanley, which has been a great partner and I have had a lot of fun with them. Marcos Ambrose always did a great job for them on the road courses, so hopefully I can keep that going. Like I said, it’s a fun race track and we’ve already got a win this season. Our mission is to go out there and just have a good time. Our guys have put a lot of work into our road course program and I am excited to see what it’s like driving a Toyota out there.”
