Did Carl Edwards Have Something to Hide?
Longtime NASCAR driver Carl Edwards is in the spotlight recently. After winning his last race a lot of theories and speculation began to occur about. Part of the issue is that many seem to believe that the damage suffered from that race was intentional. In fact, NASCAR itself is not entirely sure, and has taken the winning car back to their research lab to have a look at the evidence. But Edwards claims it’s really not that complicated, that essentially this was a big race for him to win. The question on everyone’s mind is, why would Edwards intentionally damage the front of his winning car at the end of the race? Of course the answer that Edwards gives is that he was attempting to perform a slide in the grass and subsequently hit some kind of drainage pipe damaging the front of his vehicle.
Many of the theories have occurred because of Edwards ability to seemingly jet around the track just a little faster than what everyone else was doing that way. Owner of the car Rack Roush isn’t happy about the allegations, claiming that it would be ridiculous for someone to attempt such a maneuver to hide something. Roush says, “But these celebrations after race wins have become more and more outrageous. He wasn’t trying to set a new precedent for tearing a car up, but unfortunately he hit a manhole cover.”
Now some believe that between Roush and Edwards there are some inconsistencies, like the explanation that one of them is calling it a drainage pipe and another seems to be calling the object struck a manhole cover.
