It’s been a rather forgettable year thus far in 2012 for Carl Edwards, and his starting position of No. 20 for today’s NASCAR race at Texas Motor Speedway for the Samsung Mobile 500 is just another sign of the miserable season last year’s second place Sprint Cup finisher is having. Edwards was dominant throughout most of 2011, but this year has brought middling finishes and a lot of questions for Edwards.
As he faces the rest of the field in today’s race, led by Martin Truex, Jr., Edwards hopes to right the ship and begin with a fresh start after a week off. Matt Kenseth and Greg Biffle round out the top three drivers. Clint Bowyer will start the race two spots earlier than Edwards from the No. 18 position.
Here is a look at the television schedule for Saturday’s race of the Samsung Mobile 500:
Date: Saturday, April 14, 6:30 p.m. CT
