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.
