I wasn’t hearing a lot of cocky optimism from the NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers on Friday at Infineon Raceway. Since they only run at two road courses each year there isn’t a lot of focus on it. They do testing and stuff but you don’t see many people working extra hard at trying to be the most amazing NASCAR road racer ever. Anyway, because so many drivers aren’t the greatest at the road thing it would have been fun (and funny) to hear someone say “Oh, yea, I got this one in the bag.”

And now for your viewing pleasure I have video that I shot of Carl Edwards chatting with the media outside his hauler on Friday. The sound isn’t the greatest and, as usual, my camera handling skills could use some work. But whatever, it is what it is.
