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.”
