Carl Edwards Looks Forward to Phoenix International Raceway

This Sunday the NASCAR Sprint Cup continues its West Coast swing at Phoenix International Raceway for the Good Sam 500 and Furniture Row Racing decides not to appeal penalties against its crew chief.

FOX’s Marghiee Teshineh has the latest in this week’s FOX In the Fast Lane:

Carl Edwards heads to one of his favorite tracks on the circuit, Phoenix this weekend and explained why he loves it:

(Edwards) “Phoenix is just one of those perfect race tracks, it’s the right size where you can run real fast, but you can still race really close. It’s also extremely unique that two ends are completely different, so I look forward to Phoenix.”

And does he mind the all the travel when they go West? Not anymore:

(Edwards) “I got a Citation Jet a CJ3 and so I can it make it out here nonstop. It’s the greatest thing ever.”

Edwards has two wins at Phoenix, but he’ll have to get past Kevin Harvick, who has seven wins at this track, the most of any active driver.

Officials at Furniture Row Racing have withdrawn their appeal for penalties they received at Atlanta, so crew chief Cole Pearn will serve his one race suspension this weekend. Pearn was suspended for one points race and fined $50,000 for a roof flap violation found during a pre-race inspection.
