The rest of the drivers and team owners can now take a deep breath and figure out what changes they’ll make (if any) during silly season.
Carl Edwards has signed a multi-year agreement with Roush Fenway Racing beginning in 2012. Team owner Jack Roush said that he was happy to keep Carl Edwards on board. They had a great season last year, and are also having a great season this year.
Edwards negotiated his own contract and took some time before reaching his ultimate decision. Jack Roush said that he has a lot invested into Carl and the 99 race team and is really looking forward to more success with Carl Edwards on board as a driver.
Carl Edwards is also very marketable and a great spokes person for the AFLAC team. The fans always seem to enjoy his signature back flip off of the driver side door, and his new run up the grandstands maneuver to thank the fans for coming to the race.
I think that we’re going to see more of the 99 in victory lane.
