SONOMA, Calif. (AP) - NASCAR's top series has shifted to scenic wine country and its first of two races this season on a road course.
But the talk at Infineon Raceway wasn't about the twists and turns of the winding track, or the road course ringers who show up hoping for a rare victory.
Instead, the discussion was on Carl Edwards and his contract negotiations, and the announcement that Red Bull is leaving NASCAR at the end of the season.
Edwards is the key to free agency, as most teams are waiting to see if he'll re-sign with Roush-Fenway Racing. The Sprint Cup Series points leader wouldn't comment on the situation Friday.
Other drivers are also wondering what will happen now that Red Bull's two seats could be gone at the end of the year.
