    Default Auto Racing - 2017

    figured I'd start a new thread so I have another place to talk to myself!

    What's up with Carl Edwards? I get retiring while you are still healthy and all, but the timing just comes as odd...

    I watched the press conference and if he's fulfilled what he wanted to in racing, then the timing is fine.
    As fans, we are just surprised because we didn't hear anything about this until yesterday.
    Thank you Cousin Carl for giving the fans all he had!!

    So you think Gibbs and co. knew about this in November or early December - it's only the rest of the world that's getting the word now?

    I think he still had a year left in his contract too. Does he have to buy that out?

    The timing is horrible for a lot of people. I am not sure what t think, a few people seem to think he will be starting his own team in a year with Dodge. I think the guy is to competetive and driven to just walk away without something to fill that gap. I doubt we have heard the last of him,

    And thats about what its worth.

    I remember watching a story on him when they showed him flying his own plane back home back after every race.. basically commuting to work from the midwest.. he's a homebody and wants to raise his kids.. I think he will come back at some point, in some capacity in racing,, he really did grow up in the sport. Will always remember when he went after Kenseth and that look in his eye...
