The most recent victim of the dreaded “second-place hangover” is none other than the Subway pitchman himself: Carl Edwards.
The DW12 will see it’s second outing on an oval when the IZOD IndyCar Series visits Fort Worth this weekend.
In a race that was eerily reminiscent of the 2010 Daytona 500, track-surface issues were the big story on a day which Scott Dixon otherwise dominated.
