For Edwards, There Are Plenty Of Places Better Than Home

Though his home state is Missouri, when it comes to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule, Carl Edwards calls the 1.5-mile oval in Kansas City, Kansas his home track.

And thus far, victory has eluded the talented local boy.

This one’s a Holy Grail win of sorts for Edwards, who is winless in 13 starts at the track. He’s come close on a number of occasions. His best finish was second, in 2008, part of a Kansas resume that includes five top fives and nine top 10s. His average finish there is 10.8, which ranks fifth among active drivers.

Edwards, clearly, would like a win at Kanas – but he doesn’t need one. His victory earlier this season at Bristol all but locked him into the Chase. A second win would erase any lingering doubt about a playoff spot – multiple win guarantee a driver a spot among the 16-driver Chase Grid, provided he/she finishes in the top 30 in points after race No. 26 and attempt to qualify for every race.
