Roush Fenway Racing's Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards to appear on "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" this Sunday

CONCORD, N.C. (Jan. 28, 2011) -- Roush Fenway Racing teammates Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards will appear on "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" to demonstrate the dangers of texting and driving. The show will air on Sunday, January 30, at 8 p.m. (ET) on ABC.

"Texting while driving is incredibly dangerous and I think it's an extremely important message to get out to everyone right now but especially teenage drivers," Biffle said. "While Carl and I had a lot of fun taping the segment for 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,' it is a very serious issue. Being a part of the show really opened my eyes to the dangers of texting while driving and I'm sure it will do the same for all of the viewers. Ford has a great program to educate teenagers about safe driving skills and you can get more information at www.drivingskillsforlife.com."

The RFR teammates' appearance is in support of the Brown family of Wellman, Texas who lost their daughter in a tragic auto accident involving texting and driving. Since the accident the family has dedicated their lives to communicating the dangers of this practice. Biffle and Edwards are joined by Justin Beiber and Emma Roberts on the show.
