LOUDON, N.H. — the NASCAR Xfinity Series was on the track in New Hampshire Saturday, but Sunday, the big boys take their shot in the 5-Hour Energy 301.
A lot of the talk in the last two weeks has based around the car package change that happened at Kentucky, and it seemed to agree just fine with Joe Gibbs Racing. JGR’s four drivers all finished in the top five a week ago, and they’re riding the momentum into Loudon.
They had four of the top five in practice Saturday afternoon, and Carl Edwards took the pole. If you ask Cousin Carl his opinion on the matter, he just wants to be put to the test.
“You’re supposed to be able to adapt, and as long as it’s the same rules package for everyone, it really doesn’t matter,” Edwards said. “As long as everybody’s racing the same thing it’s competition. I just want, I want to be very clear that I don’t like a specific style of racing. I just like racing to be difficult so that you have to try very hard and you have to work with your team. To me, what makes it difficult makes it a good competition.”
The four Gibbs cars start Sunday’s race in the top eight.
