DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Carl Edwards plans to run every race in NASCAR's second-tier Nationwide Series despite not being able to contend for the championship.
NASCAR is changing its rules this year by forcing drivers to select one series in which they will race for a championship. That leaves drivers like Edwards and Brad Keselowski, who race full time in the Nationwide and Sprint Cup series, no longer able to compete for titles in both divisions.
The revision presumably fills NASCAR's desire to give the second-tier series its own identity.
Edwards, though, plans to continue racing both series.
He says Thursday the Nationwide owners' championship and race victories make it worthwhile. Edwards adds that his plan could change based on ``whatever looks best for our Cup program.''
