The NASCAR season is back upon us and it is time to get you caught up with everything that happened in the offseason. Start ‘N’ Park Blog will be going through their list of drivers running the full schedule in 2013 and telling you what you can expect from those drivers in the new year. Today’s entry is the driver of the #99 Fastenal Ford, Carl Edwards. Driver: Carl Edwards #99 Sponsor(s): Fastenal/UPS/Kellogg’s/Cheez-It/Subway/Aflac Make: Ford Team: Roush Fenway Racing Crew Chief: Jimmy Fennig 2012 Finish: 15th What’s new for 2013: After a terrible 2012, Jimmy Fennig has been brought in to right the ship for Edwards and company. Fennig comes from the #17 team. Mike’s Rank: 8th Mike’s Take: Jimmy Fennig will bring Carl Edwards back to victory lane and back into the Chase. They just won’t get a title right away. I think this is a great move pairing these two, Fennig worked magic with Matt Kenseth last year and Edwards is in need of a great season. I like the combination of the two a lot. Jason’s Rank: 13th Jason’s Take: Edwards will barely miss the Chase but, the inability to have a lot of success will hurt Edwards. If Edwards wins a few more races than I expect him to, he could be in the Chase but I don’t believe he’ll be included. Brandon’s Rank: 13th Brandon’s Take: After not making the Chase in 2012, Carl Edwards is on a mission to have a rebound year.  It’s questionable whether or not he can provide a comeback but we’ll see. Brittany’s Rank: 4th Brittany’s Take: Shows promise for 2013 with new crew chief.
