QUOTES Carl Edwards on racing at Road America:
“The most demanding weekend of the year is this one. Two tough road courses that are thousands of miles apart. Billy Johnson will practice and set up the Fastenal Mustang in Wisconsin Friday while I practice and qualify the Aflac Fusion in California , then we will travel to Road America to race Saturday, then back to Infineon for Sunday’s race. I feel that Saturday’s race will help me prepare for Sunday and will make up for the lost practice in the Sprint Cup car. There is a lot of pride in winning on a road course, and a win at either event would be huge!”
Crew chief Mike Beam on racing at Road America:
“Carl is the defending champ here so he knows how to get around this track. We are bringing a new Nationwide chassis that we have tested and it is super strong. Precision on pit road will be a key factor in the outcome of this race.”
