DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.–Roush Fenway Racing driver Carl Edwards has long been a proponent of lower downforce numbers in the aerodynamic packages of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race cars.

But Edwards was not chagrined when testing at Charlotte during December led to a package that increases downforce on the cars. Why? Because Edwards understands that it’s all part of a process.

“I’m not a very patient person, so it’s difficult for me to say, ‘Hey, OK, we’re going to go ahead and go down this road for a while,'” Edwards told the NASCAR Wire Service. “…You can say what you like about NASCAR and the directions they go, but they are committed to changing whatever it takes to be the best we can be.

“I’ve learned and seen that more lately than ever. That makes me excited.”

Of course, that doesn’t change the way Edwards would like the cars to handle.

“For the record, I’m all for chopping the spoilers completely off and wetting down the track, but that’s me,”he laughed. “They know that about me.”
