Carl Edwards returns to Michigan, but not for Roush
BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) Carl Edwards acknowledges this trip to Michigan feels a bit different to him.
Edwards drives a Toyota now for Joe Gibbs Racing after more than a decade with Roush Fenway. So perhaps that makes him a bit of an outsider for Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway.
Toyota hasn't won a Cup race at MIS since 2011, with Chevrolet and Ford winning three each since then.
Edwards says winning this race in a Toyota would be special, because he's seen how much of an emphasis the domestic manufacturers put on events in Michigan.
