Carl Edwards on racing at Watkins Glen International Speedway:
“I’m very excited about running the No. 60 Subway Ford Mustang in my first Nationwide Series race of the year. It’s great to have Subway on board and it will be fun to be back in the 60 car. The Nationwide race at Watkins Glen is almost like a Sprint Cup event because of the length of the race. It’s a very long and tough race, and there is a lot of competition with all the road course specialists. There are always a lot of really fast guys there, so it’s a race that will test the equipment and our strategy. The guys are working very hard on the car and it would be big to win a road course race there.”
Crew chief Scott Graves on racing at Watkins Glen International Speedway:
“I am excited about the race this weekend and the opportunity to work with Carl. Carl is an excellent road racer and has a wealth of knowledge about the track. We will work on our set-up Friday and get the No. 60 Subway Ford dialed in. With Carl behind the wheel, I feel confident that we can have a strong finish in our debut this season.”
