Edwards quotes on the AAA Texas 500:

“We had a great test at Texas Motor Speedway, we’re hoping to go there and get a victory for Aflac. We’ve had a lot of luck and I love racing there; it’s a fast race track with a lot of character. The race track has aged quite a bit and the tires seem to work really well there, it can race three different grooves. At this point in the season it’s just about wins for us. We want go into these last three races with all the stops pulled and hopefully we can get some victories.”
