Carl Edwards would be leading both the Sprint and Nationwide Series right now. Right on. #NASCAR

Yeah. This might came as a surprise to some readers out there, but I follow NASCAR. I also follow cycling and some larger desert auto rally auto/motorcycle racing.

Carl Edwards has been my fan fave for a bit. He was a on a long dry spell last year. This year, he leads the main sersies - the Sprint cup. He can only earn points in that series, so the fact that he has won FOUR races and placed second in a few more Nationwide series races doesn't really count. Very impressive.

For the uninitiated - Sprint (sponsor name) is the main race series. There is generally a Sprint race Sunday. Nationwide (another sponsor) is one tier down. The car is similar, but not identical, and the race is run Saturday often at the same track.
