TALLADEGA, Ala. – After last Sunday’s final-lap bump-and-run, there was no tension between Richmond race winner Carl Edwards and bumpee Kyle Busch during Joe Gibbs Racing’s weekly competition meeting.
There couldn’t have been—because Edwards wasn’t there.
And on Friday at Talladega, Edwards acknowledged that he and Busch hadn’t spoken about the pass in Turn 4 at RIR, where Edwards used his bumper to move Busch’s Toyota up the track and into second place.
“No, Kyle and I haven’t had a chance to talk yet,” Edwards said. “I was testing in Indy for two days (at a Goodyear tire test) and I missed the meetings. This weekend will require us to talk together as a group and work well together (at Talladega), and I’m sure we’ll have a chance to talk.”
