Carl Edwards on racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway:
“I can’t wait to get back on the track at Charlotte Motor Speedway after one of the biggest races and wins of my career last week for the All-Star race. Our Fastenal Ford Mustang has been very fast and Fastenal will be on all three of the Roush Fenway Mustangs this week for the Nationwide Series Race. This is big for Fastenal and the whole Roush Fenway Team. The way we have been running we should get one of the Mustangs in victory lane and it would be great to finish one, two and three.”
Crew chief Mike Beam on racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway:
“We always love racing at Charlotte in our hometown. This is a special weekend because we will have Fastenal on all three Mustangs. This is the same car that we won with in Nashville. If we execute our pit stops on pit road, we should be able to get this Fastenal Ford Mustang in victory lane. “
