NASCAR announced that this weekend's NASCAR Sprint Cup and NASCAR Nationwide races are being postponed until Sunday due to weather. The Sprint Cup race is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. with the Nationwide event set for 7 p.m. Carl Edwards discussed the postponement during a brief Q&A session Friday evening.

YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE RACE THIS WEEKEND. "It should be good. I think it's gonna be real fun racing. It looks like it's gonna be about 90 degrees and sunny. My car didn't have a lot of grip, so I think it's gonna be pretty exciting 400 laps like that. Hopefully Bob and the guys make the right changes. It's kind of neat knowing, in a way I'm kind of glad NASCAR did it this way so that we aren't just waiting around for it to dry out. We know when we're racing and I think that'll be cool."

ANY IDEA WHAT YOU'LL DO? "I have no clue what I'm gonna do. I told them to fuel up the airplane. We might go home to Missouri or might stay here. I don't know."

WHAT ABOUT THE DRAMA OF THIS RACE? "I remember 2005 when I was on the bubble to make the chase and the pressure of this race, for me, was really huge. So guys like Clint and Kasey and David, I'm sure they want to get this over with and I can kind of empathize with them right now. Tomorrow is gonna be a long day, I would imagine, for them."
