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.”

4:00 PM Eastern – ESPN2/MRN

Jamie McMurray
Team: No. 26 World Financial Group Ford Fusion
Crew Chief: Chad Norris
Chassis: RK-371 Last ran Dover; finished 40th

McMurray on racing in the Busch Series at Homestead-Miami Speedway:
“Wow, I can’t believe this is the last race of the season already. It has really blown by, but I guess it always seems to do that. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Chad and the entire No. 26 Busch Series team this season. They have given me some great cars and we’ve had some strong runs. I haven’t run a Busch race at Homestead in a few years, so I’m excited to get out there and see how we can do.”

Crew Chief Chad Norris on racing at Homestead-Miami Speedway:
“The No. 26 team is glad to welcome World Financial Group onto the car this week. We are bringing chassis 371, which is a car we’ve had some really good runs with in the past. We put a brand new body on it from Dover and are excited to run this car this weekend and see how Jamie does in it. We look to end out the season on a high note with a really good finish.”

RAYBESTOS® ROOKIE HISTORY

A Raybestos® Rookie has won at least one race in each of the past FOUR consecutive seasons (2004-2007).

Danny O’Quinn Jr. narrowly edged John Andretti to win the 2006 Raybestos® Rookie of the Year title in the NASCAR Busch Series. O’Quinn Jr. finished one point higher than Andretti in the final standings, the closet margin in NASCAR national series history. He also became the second driver in series history to win the award without completing the full schedule. The 2006 Raybestos® Rookie of the Year title was the second consecutive and third overall for Roush Fenway Racing in the Busch Series.


Kyle Busch posted a record-setting year on his way to the 2004 Raybestos® Rookie of the Year title. In 34 starts, Busch won five times, captured five poles and scored 16 top-five and 22 top-10 finishes. His second-place finish in the Busch Series championship standings is a record for a Raybestos® Rookie. Other Raybestos® Rookie records Busch owns or shares: most starts (34), most wins (tied with Biffle), most top fives (tied with Biffle), most top 10s, most money won ($2,027,050), most championship points (4,943), most laps led (1,108) and most races led (21).


David Stremme holds the record for fewest starts by a driver to win Raybestos® Rookie of the Year. In 2003, he started just 18 of the 34 races and was the top rookie finisher in 16 of those starts. He was the only Raybestos® Rookie to score three top-three finishes and had more top-10 finishes (seven) than any other first-year driver. He led six races for a total of 86 laps.


David Green was the first Raybestos® Rookie to win a race, at Lanier, Ga., in 1991. Green captured the Nestle 200 by 1.58-seconds over Jeff Gordon, a fellow Raybestos® Rookie. A third Raybestos® Rookie, Todd Bodine, placed eighth in the race.


Dennis Setzer was the first Raybestos® Rookie to win TWO or more races in a season. In 1994, he won the Ford Credit 300 at South Boston (Va.) Speedway and The Pantry 300 at Hickory (N.C.) Motor Speedway.


Steve Park was the first Raybestos® Rookie to win THREE or more races in a season. In 1997, he won the BellSouth Mobility/Opryland 300 at Nashville (Tenn.) Speedway, the Detroit Gasket 200 at Michigan International Speedway and the Autolite Platinum 250 at Richmond (Va.) International Raceway.


Kenny Wallace was the first Raybestos® Rookie to win a pole in the Busch Series. Wallace grabbed the top starting spot for the 1989 Goody’s 300 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway, the first race in the history of the Raybestos® Rookie of the Year program.
