Being a Nascar fan one always seems to have their own favorite driver and I happen to be one of those Jr. fans with Tony as a back up. On Sunday I found that no matter who you're a fan of your heart still stops for a second when you see another driver in a crash such as Carl Edwards. Carl brings so much to the sport and above all he is always true to himself and his fans. I want to let all of you Jr. haters know that this is one Jr. fan who happens to be glad that Carl came out of the crash alive and above all he showed his true sportmanship, he finished the race.
Thank you Carl Edwards for being a true man and driver.

When any crash happens even if it involves a driver I don't like, I wait to see that everyone is okay. I don't want a driver I dislike hurt, I just want him to finish badly.

That was the best Talladega race since they resurfaced the track. Had Carl raced at all during the day, he might have known where the double yellow line was, and the fence for that matter. No, he drove around the back all day. He played it 'smart' last year with the same result. Think again, Carl make a move sooner and you might win the race.
