QUOTE WORTHY

Edwards quotes on the Brickyard 400

“The Brickyard is a big race for our Fastenal team.  The track is very unique and fast and has a lot of history.  It’s a race on the schedule that neither Jimmy nor I have won.  Because it’s near Fastenal’s biggest distribution center, a win there would be huge.  Our goal is to go there to win the pole and the race.”
