Earnhardt extends contract, Bowyer undecided

In a deal described as a "multiyear" arrangement, Fastenal will also sponsor both other Roush Fenway Racing cars in one 2012 race to have a run at a Fastenal top three lockout.

"It's hard to imagine a better driver or a better spokesperson for our company than Carl Edwards," said Fastenal's Executive Vice-President of Operations, Cory Jansen, in a press statement. "He's become a true member of the Fastenal 'blue team' and we can't wait to see him make a run for the championship."

Edwards' longtime Cup sponsor Aflac has not made any decision yet about its own involvement in NASCAR in 2012.
