Carl Edwards nation was up in arms after Saturday night’s Sprint Cup race at RIR with 81 laps to go because somebody (at the time nobody knew who) miscommunicated the starting order to our “favorite” son.
So what happened? Nobody really knows.
Did Tony Stewart (who was coined the leader at the time of the green flag restart) spin the tires causing Edwards to “pass” him on the track?
Was Carl told the starting order by spotters with him as being indicated the leader?
Nobody knew at the time and it doesn’t matter because Carl was nowhere near the restart box area so it doesn’t matter.
Carl also told the media after Saturday night’s race he was told the No. 99 was the leader on the restart which was incorrect. Let’s sort this out NASCAR’s way, shall we?
