Edwards: Getting real tight.
Crew chief Jimmy Fennig: Both ways?
Edwards: Mostly on these right handers. It feels like there's no left front tire on it.
Edwards: Just a little tighter everywhere... Feels like my fronts need a little air out of 'em.
Fennig: That's what we were thinking.
Fennig: 5 more laps, Carl.
Edwards: Who's the fastest car?
Fennig: The 4 car, (Kevin Harvick) and the 48 (Jimmie Johnson).
Lap 33 (After the first caution at Lap 31 brought the No. 99 in early)
Fennig: A lot of 'em are on 3 stops. If the yellow hadn't come out, everything would have worked out.
Edwards: How are my tires looking with that lock up?
Fennig: Tires look good, no cords.
Lap 60 (As the leaders come to pit road for green-flag pit stops)
Edwards:) Should we stop now?
Fennig: It ain't going to help us.
Lap 62 (During the second caution)
Fennig: We're going to stay out and stay with our game plan so we have clean air when we get our good tires.
Lap 67 (As the No. 99 gets caught in traffic)
Edwards: We're getting really screwed up here.
Edwards to spotter Jason Hedlesky: Jason, you're doing a good job. Let's just not get it wrecked here.
Lap 70 (A lap before the third caution)
Fennig: Pit this time.
Edwards: Pull fenders and everything
Lap 81 (Racing with Marcos Ambrose before taking the lead at Lap 85)
Hedlesky: You're the man now. Take him to school. Pick him apart.
Lap 86 (After the No. 9 team questioned Edwards' restart)
Edwards: The green flag was waving before I went.
Hedlesky: Good job taking it away. Stay focused.
Hedlesky: Opening it up again. Good work.
Hedlesky: Make (Jeff Gordon) over drive his stuff. Front lock up right there.
Hedlesky: Still no pressure out back. Run your race. Perfect Turn 7.
Hedlesky: Heavy right front (tire) smoke. Get your rhythm.
Hedlesky: Right front again. Closed to five (car lengths). You'll open it back up again.
Lap 110 (Final lap, next-to-last turn)
Hedlesky: Protect your (Turn) 11 here.
Edwards: Whooo. Yeah! Awesome!
