09:33 AM ET 06.19 | Ford and Roush Fenway Racing are feeling a sense of urgency to re-sign Carl Edwards. For the last month, Edwards has been rumored to be headed to Joe Gibbs Racing. Earlier this season, JGR president J.D. Gibbs acknowledged that the organization would be interested in talking to Edwards if sponsorship could be acquired for a fourth team.

Whomever dangles the most money gets the prize. Personality wise Carl and Joe Gibbs are alike. Just saying.

Home Depot would love to have Carl drive the #20. Game Stop is about ready for the step up to Cup and they could sponsor Logano and Gibbs might talk Z-Line into leaving Nationwide with Kyle and sign on to Logano in Cup. They would have no problem getting someone to sponsor Kyle in Nationwide if Z-Line moved up. I never cared for Carl but sometimes you " gotta do what you gotta do " LOL

if Edwards leaves Rousch, then Rousch needs to consider selling out and moving on..Kenseth's best days are behind him, Biffle contends every now and then for a win but isnt a cup contender, and Ragan shows flashes that he might be good one day, then goes back to field filler staus the next week...

I agree frank. I wonder if edwards will ever be kyle buschs teamate. I dont think he can stand him. I just dont see it happening, but you never know. I hope he doesnt.

So two first names wants to leave right when the Fords are finally getting that engine fine-tuned.

Carl was just saying in a pre race interview that he and Roush are working hard behind the scene on his contract renewal.....Carl did not say it was a done deal, but said he hopes they work it out soon......me too Carl.
Cannot see Carl and Kyle as teammates........and do not at all see how Gibbs and Carl are alike.....ughhh

oooops forgot to add....cannot see Carl leaving Ford when they are running so well and he is benefitting from it.

While a standard NASCAR Sprint Cup oil pan weighs about 4 pounds, the three taken off the Gibbs cars weighed an estimated 20-30 pounds apiece.
