Sunday marked another week of disappointment for Roush-Fenway Racing driver Carl Edwards. Edwards struggled the entire weekend at New Hampshire, capped off with an 18th place finish in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Lenox Tools 301.
The driver who lost the title last year in a tiebreaker and finished the season second in points left New Hampshire 11th in the standings with no chance to even make this year’s Chase.
“Our strategy was very good,” Edwards said. “But when we put on two tires at the end we went backwards because we hadn’t put on two tires to that point and it was extremely loose. The pit stops were great and I thought the strategy was great, but we just missed something in the setup. It’s really frustrating because, obviously, we needed a good run here today for the points.” MORE>>>
