Edwards Likes His Chances
is trying to take up where he left off Monday. Edwards, who won the rain-postponed Auto Club 500 at Fontana, was No. 2 on the speed chart Saturday in the final practice session for the UAW-Dodge 400.
"I think our odds are pretty good at being able to win here," Edwards said. "Jimmie [Johnson] and those guys have some way of pulling things out here at the end, but hopefully we can be the guys to stop them."
Edwards was one of only two Fords in the top 10 in Happy Hour. Greg Biffle
was eighth in the No. 16 Fusion.
Three of the four Hendrix Motorsports drivers ranked in the top six in Happy Hour. Jeff Gordon
finished fourth, Johnson was fifth and Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Drivers have had a hard time this weekend keeping the new car from fishtailing out of the turns and sliding into the wall. So what's wrong?
"Hard tire," Martin Truex Jr.
said. "The same thing that's wrong with my car every time I come here with these tires on the new asphalt. We just can't figure out how to get any grip.
"The car is real, real evil to drive. It just snaps loose whenever it feels like it. I think a lot of people fight the same thing, but we've never really figured anything out."
