In the recent past, NASCAR fans have witnessed a lot of their favorite drivers retire. It all began with the retirement of Jeff Gordon, a legend who left the sport while he was still at the top of his game. Following him, Tony Stewart, Carl Edwards, Dale Earnhardt Jr, and Jimmie Johnson joined the list. One retirement that caught everyone off guard was Carl Edwards’, right after the 2016 championship. However, among all the retired drivers, the one fans yearn to see back on the track, at the moment, is Carl Edwards.

They miss his signature backflips and his aggressive driving style, not to mention his undeniable fitness for racing. There has been considerable speculation about Edwards’s potential comeback this year, fueled by his appearances at Darlington and now Nashville. In a recent interview at Nashville, Edwards shared surprising insights about his potential return to racing.

During the post-Ally 400 media appearances, the 43-year-old was asked about the possibility of making a comeback in racing this year. However, he promptly denied any plans to do so and provided his reasons for it.

While he had teased a comeback before, Carl now confused fans by saying, “I’m not planning on doing any driving. This is the tip of the spear I mean these guys are so good that I would be terribly slow so I’d have to prep a lot. Seriously that’s the truth and for me, I really feel racing is a risky sport. There is risk involved and if I’m not committed 100 percent and I don’t feel that it’s the right thing for me to go do for fun.”

Carl continued by giving reasons, “I’ve been paying attention the hits are hard it’s one of the reasons I’m not racing because I’m aware of that.”

“If it creeps in and something we want to go do, then I promise you I’ll give it a hundred percent I’ll do the best I can. But for right now, no, I’m not planning on anything,” he concluded. A puzzling statement, isn’t it?
