NASCAR America: Drivers react to Carl Edwards’ departure from sport


When the NASCAR season gets underway over the course of the next two weeks, it will be without Carl Edwards behind the wheel of a car for the first time since 2004.

NASCAR America asked his former peers in the Cup Series, including Jimmie Johnson, how they view Edwards’ surprise departure from the sports

“I think he’s at peace with it and in a good place,” Johnson said. “Every driver has to decide for his own health, what best for his family and is he satisfied in the car. It’s not easy to make that decision. I’m glad he’s at that point and can recognize it and stepped away on his own term.”
