I'm a little late in offering congratulations to former student Carl Edwards. Carl won both NASCAR cup races on the last weekend this year, but it wasn't enough to fuel wins in either series. He finished second in both the Nationwide and the Sprint Cup series.
Despite the second place finishes (which ain't all that shabby), Carl won nine races in the Sprint Cup, including three of the last four. He won seven races in the Nationwide Cup this year, also including three of the last four. The finishes were not enough to win the overall points race, but the season was not shabby.
