Just how does he do it? Carl Edwards was born on August 15, 1979 and races in both the Nextel Cup series and the Busch series. His hometown is Columbia, MO but he lives in Mooresville, NC.

Edwards is one of the young faces of NASCAR. Many drivers in this sport are older. In 2004, he won the first race in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck series at Daytona.

He took time out of his busy schedule to speak with the media at MIS. He was testing his car on the track to prepare for the races coming up which are just one week away. Carl Edwards reports, "We tested great yesterday. It's fun here."

Edwards was asked about his recent performace at Brickyard. He responded, "We ran 12th at Brickyard. I knew we had to have a good day there. We've accomplished everything except making the top ten."

He was asked how it feels to have Paul Tracy joining NASCAR for the first time in the upcoming GFS Marketplace 400. Edwards answers, "I think it be awesome to have him in NASCAR. He seems like a pretty tough dude."

Our interview was outside of the garage area in the infield at MIS. The temperate was around 90°. Race car drivers have it even worse. Edwards explains, "It's 150° where the pedals are."

What do you think about Tony Stewart who is on top of the points standings in the Nextel Cup series? Edwards says, "The dude is fast. It says a lot about his mental toughness. He's been a champion."

Edwards drives the #99 Roush Racing Ford and the #60 Charter Ford. He is expected to race in both the GFS Marketplace 400 and the Domino's Pizza 250. Some seats are still available. To order, go to www.mispeedway.com or call 1-800-354-1010.

A whole weekend of racing is planned. It all begins on Thursday with ARCA qualifying, the ARCA 200 race on Friday, The NASCAR Busch Series Domino's Pizza 250 race which includes a concert by Sugarland and Josh Turner and concludes with the GFS Marketplace 400 race on Sunday.
