Could Carl Edwards win Talladega for Three in a row?

rir_nscs_edwards_decal_042416Triple Threat: Edwards Eyes Third Straight Victory
Carl Edwards bumped teammate Kyle Busch on the final lap of Sunday’s Toyota Owners 400 to pass him for his second win in as many weeks.

Edwards will go for his third straight win in Sunday’s GEICO 500 joining Busch as the only other driver to attempt the feat this season.

Joey Logano was the last driver to win three straight races when he swept the Contender Round of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup in 2015. Busch also visited Victory Lane three straight times last year (Kentucky, New Hampshire and Indianapolis).

Edwards has been dominant the last three races, leading the most laps in each of them.

He ranks first on the Chase Grid on the strength of two wins, five top fives and eight top 10s.

The No. 19 Toyota driver has never won at Talladega. His best finish at the Alabama track was third in spring of 2013.
