Edwards quotes on the Kobalt Tools 400

“Since the test in Charlotte this off season, the whole 99 team has been looking forward to the race in Vegas,” said Edwards. “We feel that we have a very fast Aflac Ford Fusion and that all the Ford’s should be pretty tough there. We’re going to Las Vegas to make it two in a row. We feel like we can use the momentum we’ve got and the confidence we built there in Phoenix to go have great pit stops, qualify well and race hard all day.”
