Carl Edwards turns tour guide for grade-school class (and Kenny Wallace)

Long before becoming one of the top drivers in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, in another life, Carl Edwards was a substitute teacher.

It's true.

So it should come as no surprise that when FOX Sports NASCAR television analyst flew with Edwards to Concord, North Carolina on Tuesday, Edwards was ready and willing to give a tour of his airplane to the group that was waiting for him on the tarmac.

And with that, Edwards proceeded to lead the tour of the plane himself — to a grade-school class that probably reminded him of those long ago days, when he worked as a substitute teacher in Missouri by day and was attempting to get his racing career launched by night.

From the looks of it, Edwards does pretty well at both jobs. The driver of the No. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota posed with the kids at the end of the tour, and obviously helped make their day.

(And Kenny Wallace's, too, of course).
