Carl Edwards preview

Event: Las Vegas

Carl Edwards on racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway:

"I'm excited to come to Vegas, we all like coming to Vegas. The fans are great, the facility is second-to-none and the racing is spectacular. The win in 2008 was really special and I have to say that is one of the coolest victory lanes anywhere with showgirls, the title belt, champagne and fans everywhere. Running well in Vegas is especially important after our misfortune in Phoenix last weekend. We went from first to 12th in the points so we need to get back up there."

Crew chief Bob Osborne on racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway:

"Las Vegas has been a strong track for all the Roush Fenway teams over the years. Carl has had some success there in both Cup and Nationwide. We've got another new car that we are bringing to the track this weekend that should be very competitive. We had a great car in Phoenix last weekend that we believe was capable of winning, but things didn't go our way."

The No. 99 crew will unload RK-732 for the weekend.
