A Change Will Do Edwards Good

  What does Carl Edwards have to lose? There's nothing but upside with his announced move to Joe Gibbs Racing in 2015. Sometimes you just know you've given it your all in one place, and it's time to try something new. Of course, the anti-Toyota crowd is howling in protest over it.

IS BIFFLE’S VICTORY AT KANSAS A GAME CHANGER?

Going into Kansas last weekend, Greg Biffle needed a big finish. He came in dragging a string of disappointing finishes dating all the way back to Atlanta.
