Carl Edwards surprised us all in an interview recently when he spoke out against Dale Jr.
Recently Carl Edwards was asked if he felt bad about passing Dale Jr. His response was nothing that we were expecting!
He explained that despite popular belief, he has NO remorse for racing hard against retiring drivers.
“I don’t have any remorse for the retiring drivers. Would you do anything different racing Dale Jr. for a win’? We all are on our own different agendas. Even though we kind of sympathize, ‘Hey, he’s going to be retiring, take it easy on the old guy.’ I remember a guy that was retiring last year that took me out at Sonoma on the last lap.”
He sounds a little bitter about that….Stewart caught Hamlin on the final turn and slammed the No. 11 Toyota into the pit road wall before streaking to the finish line to claim his 49th and final Cup win.
Hamlin continued on about how he’d LOVE to beat Dale Jr. on the last lap at Daytona.
“Ideally, I’d like to beat Dale Jr. on the last lap at Daytona. I know it might be a bad thing for the fans, they might not like it. My fans surely will and I know it would be a great moment for me.”
I call that disrespect! Lol I pray that doesn’t happen in July!
