Carl Edwards declined to comment on his contract status Friday at Infineon Raceway. He has been rumored to be in discussions with Joe Gibbs Racing about a ride for next season.
Edwards’s contract expires at the end of the season, and Roush Fenway Racing is working to re-sign him and all of his primary sponsors.
As far as my contract status, it is the same as the beginning of the year. We are working hard on it and we do all that stuff behind closed doors. We are making progress and hopefully we will be able to tell you guys what my plan is soon.
When asked about the JGR rumor, he said:
I have heard rumors about all different teams for the last two years. The thing I am going to do is keep working on it and working on it privately. I think that is the best way for me.
