It wasn’t all that long ago that Carl Edwards was the shining star of the Roush-Fenway Racing stable.  Edwards was leading his fellow Ford drivers as he contended for the season championship; it took a tiebreaker in 2011 for Edwards to lose the NASCR Sprint Cup to Tony Stewart.

Edwards entered 2012 as a definite favorite; not only to lead the pack at Roush-Fenway, but to be among the top contenders for this season’s title.  Ten races into the season however and it’s almost as though Edwards is being left behind in the dust while his teammates and the rest of the field passes him by.

Through the first ten races of 2012, Edwards’ best finish has been fifth, twice. Last season through ten races he had six top five finishes including three second place runs and a win. While his teammates Matt Kenseth and Greg Biffle shine, Edwards continues to struggle. That struggle continued Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway. MORE>>>
