VIDEO: Edwards Excited After Test At Darlington
Carl Edwards and several other Sprint Cup stars gave the new, faster Gen-6 race car a thumbs-up after a Goodyear tire test recently at Darlington Raceway.
Edwards said the digital speedometer on his Ford Fusion hit 193 mph right before entering turn three, a typically unheard of speed at the ultra-tricky track.
"Each time down, you want to watch and see what you're doing," he said. "But the fastest point is the point where the track needs your attention and your eyes are not supposed to be on that monitor. I saw 193 or something, but I can't look at it any longer before I have to look into the corner."

Edwards and other Ford NASCAR drivers also participated in a parade through downtown Charlotte, N.C., as part of the NASCAR Media Tour recently. Roush Fenway Racing posted this short video of Edwards having a little fun with his fellow drivers and other parade participants during his short drive through Uptown.
