Carl Edwards, driver of the No. 99 Aflac Ford Fusion, calls Kansas Speedway his home track on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series circuit and he wants to win there more than anywhere. He spoke about that facility with reporters last weekend.

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE SUCCESSFUL THERE? "Kansas takes everything. It takes a good engine, good qualifying effort, pit crew. The biggest thing I think it takes is a crew chief that understands how to make that car work through a long run there. So much happens at Kansas. The cars get tight, or they get loose in and you've got to really have a good crew chief. Fuel mileage is gonna be key, too."

WHAT DISTINGUISHES THAT TRACK FROM THE OTHER 1.5-MILE TRACKS LEFT IN THE CHASE? "It's really simple what distinguishes Kansas for me, it's Kansas. It's two hours from home. It's the fans. That place is just awesome."

IS THAT THE TRACK YOU WANT TO WIN AT MORE THAN ANY OTHER BECAUSE OF THE LOCATION? "Yeah. I was fortunate to win the truck race there at Kansas. That was a huge victory and to win the Cup race would be unbelievable. That would be great."
