Edwards admitted that he was impressed by the revival of Penske and Kurt Busch, and was frank that he had no chance of contending for the lead against the #22 this weekend. "In the end on the restart they were telling me [Kurt's] lap times and he was kind of easing around there. Every once in awhile he would blister off a fast lap. His car was extremely good and he did a good job managing it. I think he had just a very fast car.
"They definitely have turned things around," he said, comparing it with his own situation exactly a year ago after Infineon. "One year ago after this race, we turned things around, got on a roll. Now all I worry about is how long it's going to last, if we can keep it going. I'm sure they're thinking the same thing, hoping they can keep this going through the whole season.
"It's amazing how the performance in this sport peaks and can fall as quickly as well."
