Carl Edwards on Verge of 50th NASCAR Win

Carl Edwards is attempting to accomplish something that only 13 other NASCAR drivers have done in the modern era (1972-present).

Edwards’ next victory will be the 50th of his career, and he will join teammates Mark Martin and Greg Biffle as the only drivers with 50 wins while driving for Roush Fenway Racing.

"I feel blessed to have had the opportunities that I’ve been given by Jack Roush, Ford, all of my sponsors and everyone at the shop," said Edwards, who will have two opportunities at Michigan to get the win this weekend.

Edwards races in the Nationwide race on Saturday and the Sprint Cup race on Sunday.

"Michigan is one of the best tracks we could be going to right now," Edwards said. 'This marks the sixth anniversary of my first Cup race, so this race always reminds me of that day and what a great opportunity Jack Roush and Ford has given me."
