Carl Edwards has been selected as the newest inductee into Texas Motor Speedway’s Texas Motorsports Hall of Fame.

Edwards won at TMS six times in his NASCAR career including four times in the Cup Series. He will be the 20th inductee into the Hall of Fame.

Edwards, who retired from NASCAR competition ahead of the 2017 season, earned the last of his 28 Cup wins in the fall 2016 race at Texas.

Edwards was the first driver to sweep Texas’ two race dates in 2008.

Edwards will be inducted in a special ceremony during the November race weekend at the track. It will be held Nov. 3 in The Grand Ballroom of the track’s Speedway Club, beginning at Noon ET.

The Texas Motorsports Hall of Fame ceremony serves as a major fundraiser for the Speedway Children’s Charities-Texas Chapter. Tickets are priced at $75 and includes a gourmet Texas barbecue.
