Roush Fenway Racing re-signs Edwards

NASCAR driver Carl Edwards was trying to decide between staying at Roush Fenway Racing or to accept an offer from Joe Gibbs Racing.

On Thursday, Edwards announced that he was staying with owner Jack Roush’s team. He is the current points leader in the Sprint Cup Series, competing for his first Cup championship.

This week with a new deal in hand, Edwards heads to Pocono Raceway in Lake Pond, Pennsylvania with an 11-point lead over five-time defending series champion Jimmie Johnson.

Roush Fenway Racing has four drivers under contract in Matt Kenseth, Greg Biffle and David Ragan.

The likeable Edwards has been with Roush since 2002, when he got his first break in NASCAR. He started in the Truck Series, then was elevated to the Cup series by 2004 as a late-season replacement for Jeff Burton.

In 2005, Edwards became a serious NASCAR star driver by winning a four times that season.

The best season for Edwards was 2008, when he was victorious a series-high nine times and finished second to Johnson in the championship race. He struggled in 2009.

NASCAR RACE #22 PREVIEW: Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway

The NASCAR Sprint Cup moves back into the Midwest as it settles into the famous brickyard of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Brickyard 400 presented by a new sponsor, BigMachineRecords.com!

The race will start from Indianapolis, Indiana at 1:00 p.m. On ESPN.

The Brickyard is 400 miles which breaks down to 160 laps on the 2.5 oval.

A crowd of 250,000 is expected.

This world’s most famous racing facility is best known for the Indianapolis 500 which runs every May right before Memorial Day. The Brickyard as it is called, was built in 1909 and is actually asphalt with flat straightaways. The track was paved in late 1909 with 3.2 million paving bricks. The “Yard of Bricks” remains at the start/finish line.

Rewinding to the 2010 Brickyard 400 race, Juan Pablo Montoya led 86 of 160 laps, but it was Jamie McMurray who took the lead from Kevin Harvick on the final restart and led the final 11 laps. Montoya was involved in a crash with Dale Earnhardt Jr. on lap 147 of 160.

Harvick finished second, Greg Biffle third, Clint Bowyer fourth and Tony Stewart fifth.

The win by McMurray was very sweet for car owner Chip Ganassi, who celebrated his first Daytona 500 win, had Dario Franchitti win the Indy Racing League’s Indy 500 and won the Brickyard 400 in 2010.

Those achievements allowed Ganassi to become the first owner to win the “Triple Crown” of American auto racing in one season.

The top drivers at the Brickyard 400 are Jeff Gordon with four wins and Tony Stewart with two.

On the pole for the 2011 race is David Ragan, driver of the #6 UPS/Hall of Fame/Ned Jarrett Ford.
