Carl Edwards, driver of the No. 60 Save a Lot Ford Fusion, captured the pole for Saturday afternoon's Heluva Good! 200 NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Dover International Speedway. This is Edwards ninth pole in 120 career NASCAR Nationwide Series starts and second pole of the 2008 season. He has one win (2007), two top-five and four top-10 finishes at Dover.

"This is a tough place to pass. I think that the concrete surface stays pretty much the same in qualifying to the race and everything. If you're fast in qualifying, hopefully, I guess historically, that's translated into a fast race car for the race. I'm just so proud of my Save a Lot guys. We worked really hard in practice and we tried a bunch of different things. We haven't been running as well as I think we should lately. It's really cool for PK [crew chief Pierre Kuettel] and the guys to work extra hard to get us a fast race car. It's good. My just really proud of my guys. I stopped in at Save a Lot down the street this week and hopefully that's good luck. Hopefully we get a good race in today. My guys have done a great job. PK, Darrell Morrow and all the guys. We haven't run as well as I think we should have run for a while now and we've been working really hard. This is a great start to our rebound. Hopefully it translates to a win. This is a fun race tracks."

YOU'RE SO GOOD ON CONCRETE, TODAY MIGHT BE THE DAY FOR A WIN." Yeah, I don't know why we've run really well at these places. The just usually have great race cars for me. I hope this ones one of them. To win a race for Save a Lot, it would be great. We've been really close. I think we've wrecked almost every time I've been in one of these race cars, so hopefully, we turn that around today and we can get a win. That would be spectacular."
