Carl Edwards
Team: No.99 Office Depot Ford Fusion
Crew Chief: Bob Osborne
Chassis: RK-320 Last ran Fontana in Sept. ’07; started 19th, finished 2nd
Ran Texas in Nov. ‘07; started 21st, finished 26th

Edwards on racing at Homestead-Miami Speedway:
“The last two weeks we’ve had great race cars, but we’ve had some mechanical troubles that have kept us from realizing our potential. This week, we’re not going to have those issues and we’re bringing a really great Office Depot car that we raced at California and Texas. Hopefully, we’ll have a top five run that will clinch us inside the top 10 in the ‘Chase’. I really like Homestead – I ran eighth there last year and my teammates have won there the past couple of years – as a whole, Roush Fenway Racing runs really well there, and hopefully my Office Depot team will be able to cap off the 2007 season with a win.

“Homestead-Miami is pretty much the home track for Office Depot, since they are headquartered just up the road in Delray Beach. I’m really looking forward to spending time with the associates at their campus this week and having a great showing for them in the Ford 400 this weekend.”

Crew Chief Bob Osborne on racing at Homestead-Miami Speedway:
“We really needed to have a better day last week at Phoenix. Our Office Depot Ford was extremely fast and well on its way to victory lane, but a parts failure ended our day early and really hurt us in the point standing. All we can do is the best we can this weekend at Homestead and hopefully end our season with a strong finish. The Office Depot team really stepped it up in the pits the last few weeks, so if they continue their good work and we can give Carl another a fast car, which I think we can, we should be able to run up front. We’ll just have to see what happens.”

Ford 300 - Carl Edwards Notes

Carl Edwards
NASCAR Busch Series: Ford 300
Saturday November 17
4:00 PM Eastern – ESPN2/MRN

Carl Edwards

Team: No. 60 Scotts Ford Fusion
Crew Chief: Pierre Kuettel
Chassis: RK-427 Last ran at Lowe’s, October ’07; finished 33rd

Edwards on racing in the Busch Series at Homestead-Miami Speedway:“Wow, I can’t believe the season will be over this weekend. Homestead is an awesome 1.5-mile track with lots of grooves, just like I like. I had a great Busch race there last year finishing second. Since the championship is locked up, I plan on pressing it to the hilt and going for the win. It would be great to cap off the season with a victory for Scotts.”

Crew Chief Pierre Kuettel on racing at Homestead-Miami Speedway:
“This will be the last hoorah for the Scotts Ford Fusion this season. We’re going to go down there with some pretty high expectations and we should run pretty well. We have been doing okay on our big track program and we’ll go for the win. It’s been an up and down season and our Scotts team would love to end on a high note.”
