Carl Edwards on racing at Daytona International Speedway:

"I know a lot can happen at Daytona. The past three July races there have been good for us, so hopefully I can keep the Subway Ford out of trouble and finish up front. Last year we went there with a car that could win and good race strategy and ended up fourth. We're bringing a new Ford Fusion that should be pretty good, so I'm expecting good things. We're getting down to the final few races before the Chase, so a strong finish and more importantly a win would be huge."

Crew chief Bob Osborne on racing at Daytona International Speedway:

"The night race at Daytona is an exciting race. We have the tension of superspeedway racing with the added need for a race car that handles well over a fuel run. A solid run at Daytona will be important to the 99 team. Anything can happen there, but I feel that with smart racing, we'll be in good shape. We just need to finish up front and I know we can do that."

CARL EDWARDS enters the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway 12th in the NASCAR Sprint Cup point standings, 469 markers behind point leader Kevin Harvick. In 17 starts this season, Edwards has accumulated one top-five and six top-10 finishes.

ON THE TRACK...The No. 99 will have Subway as the primary sponsor for the second of three races this season. The team will be bringing RK-692 this weekend to Daytona. It is a brand new car.
