Edwards speculations take centre stage

Meanwhile, those in the know suggest that they're not surprised with how the negotiations have gone on, become drawn out and gone down to the wire.

"I'm not surprised," said Sunday's runner-up at Indianapolis, Jeff Gordon. "I spoke to Carl years ago when he stayed with Roush. We talked to him, as he talked to every team. I saw his negotiating tactics at that time. It's not surprising to me."
