Edwards loving Phoenix after latest win
Question of the Day
AVONDALE, ARIZ. (AP) - Phoenix International Raceway is quickly becoming one of Carl Edwards' favorite tracks.
Edwards ran the first paved race of his career at PIR during the 2001 Copper World Classic and has ended two long winless streaks at the mile oval, including Sunday.
"Each time this place is so special to me," he said.
It's certainly become a drought buster.
In 2010, Edwards ended the longest winless streak of 70 straight races by winning at PIR. Coming off a disappointing weekend at Daytona, he said he would dominate at Phoenix and came through, leading the final 78 laps to end a second 70-race winless streak at the track.
Of course, it's not a streak he wants to continue.
"Hopefully we don't have any more 70-race losing streaks in my career, but if they were to happen, I'll look forward to Phoenix again sometime," Edwards said.
