Carl Edwards, a member of the President's Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition, is a championship NASCAR driver who won the 2007 Nationwide Series championship and finished second in the 2011 Sprint Cup Series. He has had a storied NASCAR career, moving his way from the Camping World Truck Series to NASCAR's elite Sprint Cup Series, winning a Nationwide Series Championship, and chalking up numerous wins in between. He is considered one of NASCAR's most voracious competitors, accumulating two NASCAR sanctioned track championships, three Rookie-of-the-Year honors, and more than 75 feature wins while racing on both dirt and pavement tracks across the country.
He has set numerous records including winning his first Cup and Nationwide races at Atlanta Motor Speedway in the same weekend, becoming the only driver in history to achieve that feat; sweeping both Cup races at Atlanta in a season, a track first; winning his first Pocono race, becoming only the second driver to win in his first visit to the tri-oval; and becoming the first driver to win at Texas Motor Speedway under the lights in the inaugural Dickie's 500.
When he's not on-track, Edwards enjoys spending time with his family and riding bicycles, working out, and reading. He is also passionate about his philanthropic activities, which include working with charities such as Speedway Children's Charities and Dream Factory. Short Bio
