Carl Edwards acknowledges this trip to Michigan feels a bit different to him.
Edwards drives a Toyota now for Joe Gibbs Racing after more than a decade with Roush Fenway. So perhaps that makes him a bit of an outsider for Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Mich.
Toyota hasn’t won a Cup race at MIS since 2011, with Chevrolet and Ford winning three each since then.
Edwards said winning this race in a Toyota would be special “because for the domestic car manufacturers, this is their back yard.”
Edwards is starting in the second row for Sunday’s race.
