Published November 18, 2011
EVERYBODY LOVES COUSIN CARL: In Miami, Gary Long writes many NASCAR fans "concur that it’s high time for a fresh face at the top,” and “none is fresher” than Edwards. Long: “He’s affable. He’s charming. He’s clever. He has an infectious grin big on teeth. Oh, and he’s ripped, with a sculpted upper body.” The camera “loves him, and he can mix conversationally with Regis and Kelly.” Ford Racing Communications Dir Kevin Kennedy said, “He’s the face of our NASCAR program not only on track but in our marketing.” He added, “We have plans for Carl to be involved in future product launches. Female fans like him. Male fans like him. Kids like him. He fits what Ford is looking for in a spokesman” (MIAMI HERALD, 11/18).
