EDWARDS GETS THREE WEEKS’ PROBATION FOR WRECKING KESELOWSKI

NASCAR is holding true to its word. The boys will have at it in 2010. NASCAR slapped Carl Edwards on the wrist for intentionally wrecking Brad Keselowski during last weekend's race in Atlanta. On Tuesday NASCAR president Mike Helton said that the decision to give Edwards three weeks' probation was based on two separate issues - the wreck itself and the fact that the car went airborne.Did Edwards get off easy? Or was it correct for NASCAR to punish the intent, rather than the outcome? E ...

EDWARDS FLIPS KESELOWSKI AT ATLANTA

Only a real jerk could make Brad Keselowski look like a sympathetic character. Congratulations, Carl Edwards. You have done the impossible. Down 156 laps because of an earlier crash with Keselowski, Edwards turned - and subsequently flipped - Keselowski with three laps to go at the Kobalt Tools 500. It was clearly an act of revenge. Edwards admitted as much, although he said he did not intend to send Keselowski airborne. In a television interview, Keselowski said that Edwards almost killed him a ...

AUTO CLUB 500 ODDS

Wow, did I screw up at Daytona.If anyone doubted this pick column concept was for the sake of fun and merriment, just look at my Daytona debacle from last week.In hindsight, I should have stayed away from any driver associated with Whopper Man,  jumped off Harvick’s lower odds and put my money on Clint Bowyer (same driver/better money maker if he won) and Jamie McMurrary, whom I will now dub Captain Restrictor Plate.What could have been was a $300 payout and $250 in profit. What did h ...

CARL EDWARDS ON ‘LATE LATE SHOW’

Maybe it's because I don't watch a lot of late-night television, but this clip made me realize Craig Ferguson gives a really good interview. Carl Edwards - who will never be mistaken for a big personality like Darrell Waltrip - comes off well in this segment on the "Late Late Show." Edwards and Ferguson talk about the Talladega crash, flying and fatherhood. (Can you spot the theme? It's fear.) Good stuff. Video below.

CARL EDWARDS ON THE PRICE IS RIGHT

Carl Edwards appeared on "The Price is Right" yesterday to offer contestants two NASCAR-themed Showcase Showdown prize packages. One of the packages included - wait for it, race fans - a trailer and satellite TV. (Stereotype confirmed!) The other prize package included a Ford Fusion hybrid. Hey. Wait a second. Carl Edwards drives a Ford Fusion in the Sprint Cup. I accuse this "game show" of being nothing more than one, long advertisement for affordable cars, merchandise and g ...
