Denny Hamlin says he’s talked to Carl Edwards about a return to NASCAR
In 2016, Carl Edwards was in the battle for a NASCAR Cup Series championship. The hopes at a title ended when he was turned into the inside wall.
After that crash, with a year remaining on his contract, Edwards appeared in the office of team owner Joe Gibbs and asked to be released from his contract. The move shocked the industry and Edwards hasn’t been seen behind the wheel of a racecar since.
At first, Edwards dropped off the map. He went on to become a farmer in Missouri and travel the oceans, touring the world via a boat.
Recently, Edwards has been popping back up in the NASCAR scene. He was recently added to NASCAR’s 75 greatest drivers list and he’s made some appearances at racetracks.
