Columbia’s Carl Edwards believes this is the right thing to do at this time.
He has confirmed he is “stepping away from full-time driving in the cup series’,” says Edwards in a press conference this morning. Though fans are saddened by the news, they will be happy to find out that his decision was made for personal reasons, rather than health concerns.
During the press conference, Edwards explained his career and the reasons behind wanting to take time away from racing. Reasons included satisfaction with his career, wanting to have time to pursue other passions and his future health.

And though he knows he will not return to full-time racing in 2017, Edwards hasn’t banned the sport altogether. *Insert mini happy dance!
