BRISTOL, Tenn. — Driver Carl Edwards and his crew chief, Chad Norris, have worked together for five races, and they aren’t exactly bosom buddies.
In fact, since Norris took over for longtime pit boss Bob Osborne, his relationship with Edwards has been confined to things that make the No. 99 Roush Fenway Racing Ford go faster.
“I don’t even know where he lives,” Edwards told ESPN’s Ricky Craven with a smile. “I don’t know his middle name.”
Edwards, who is fighting for a Chase spot, has posted two top-10s since Norris came on board, but he needs at least one victory in the final three races before the Chase to have a realistic shot.
