Say what?

Kyle Busch's post-race comments add fuel to the Carl Edwards' speculation

SONOMA, Calif. -- File it under things that make you go “hmm…” but there was an interesting exchange over the No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing radio frequency after Carl Edwards won the Toyota/SaveMart 350 on Sunday.

While Kyle Busch was driving into the garage after race he asked, “Is the M&Ms contract signed yet?”

To which an unidentified voice replies, “No”.

Crew chief Dave Rogers then adds, “But you fought hard all day. Sorry we didn’t bring you a better race car. You drove all day. Bring it back to us.”

While we’re not sure what to make of the comments, the timing seems curious, particularly since J.D. Gibbs told reporters this weekend that M&Ms will remain with Busch through 2015.

Busch finished 25th on Sunday while Edwards, who is the man rumored to be joining JGR and taking the M&M's sponsorship from Kyle, won the race.
