But one big 0-fer.

"No victories, though," Edwards said. "That’s the problem."

Edwards has long considered Kansas his hometown track, at least in NASCAR, since it opened in 2001. Edwards hails about 140 miles east from the track in Columbia, Mo. — home of Shakespeare’s Pizza, The Blue Note and Rock Bridge State Park — but not a Sprint Cup champion. At least, not yet.

Edwards still has the rest of this season to chase a championship for Jack Roush and Roush Fenway Racing. But his future remains uncertain: Edwards and RFR teammate Greg Biffle are the top remaining free agents in the Sprint Cup Series, and both could be on the move. Joe Gibbs Racing, which was turned down by Edwards when he re-signed with Roush in 2011, could be interested in making another run at him to expand to four cars next season.

Edwards, who starts fourth, refused Friday to discuss contract negotiations and his interest in JGR.

"At the end of the day, I am a Ford driver and drive for Jack Roush and that is my job," he said.

Edwards is fifth in the points and already has a win this season, securing his spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.
