For those relatively new to this blog, Carl Edwards was a student of mine when I was a TA at the University of Missouri. Carl is now tearing it up in NASCAR's Busch and Nextel circuit. Today, he got his 3rd win this year, coming in first at Atlanta Motor Speedway, the second time he's won at Atlanta. Carl, in his first full seasons in both circuits, is in 4th place in the Nextel Cup standings and in 3rd in the Busch standings. That's not bad for a rookie.
