Carl Edwards Atlanta Quotes

Sunday, Sep 02 3001

CARL EDWARDS – No. 99 Subway Ford Fusion – “This is not the interview I wanted to do after the race.  Our Subway Fusion was pretty good.  I was having a lot of fun driving.  I love this race track, but it looks like a piston or something.  It started making noise about 25-30 laps ago and it’s just hard to put into words.  That’s just how our season has been going and I don’t know what the reason is.  We treat these engines like gold and we hardly ever have engine troubles.  These guys do a great job – Doug Yates and everyone at Roush Yates Engines – but we’ll go to Richmond and go win that race and somehow maybe a miracle will happen.  We’ll make the Chase and go win this championship.  That’s our mission.”

WHAT CAN YOU SAY?  “I don’t even know what to say.  That’s so fitting for how our year has been going.  The car was running pretty well.  I was having a lot of fun.  We were tuning it in and it was getting better and better as the night went on.  The pit crew was almost flawless tonight . They did a really good job, but I heard the engine making a little bit of noise about 30-40 laps ago and was kind of in denial.  I thought, ‘No, it’s OK.  It’s alright,’ and then finally it looks like a piston broke or something like that.  I don’t know what to say.  Somebody is trying to teach me something here.  I hope we get all of this out of our system soon because it sure is fun to go win these races and be in the hunt.  This is not fun.”

WERE YOU AWARE STEWART WAS HAVING PROBLEMS AND YOU COULD HAVE BEEN WITHIN STRIKING DISTANCE NEXT WEEK?  “Yeah, and I don’t know.  We could still be within distance.  Anything can happen.  I don’t ever quit and this team doesn’t ever quit, but, man, that’s getting kicked when you’re down right there.  That’s not what we needed, but we’ve got big shoulders.  If there’s anybody that can take it, we’ll take it and we’ll go out and do our very best.  Like they say, a bad day at the race is better than a good day doing almost anything else.  I really enjoyed the race tonight.  I had a good time and I’m just trying to come to grips with how pivotal this is for our season, how bad it is, but that’s just the way it is.”

YOU WERE COACHING THE TEAM FROM INSIDE THE CAR.  “Yeah, we don’t give up.  We won’t quit.  I told my wife today, ‘There’s something in Vegas I’m not supposed to go do.’  I mean, I just can’t believe this.  We’ve never had this bad of luck.  I’ve been trying to live right and do the right things, so I hope there’s a reason for all of this, but, man, it’s just so frustrating.  It’s so amazing how many things can compound and go bad, but we’re still standing up and everybody is alright.  We’ll go racing at Richmond for the win.  There’s no better place.  This is as good as it gets and Richmond is almost as good as this place for us.”
