Edwards Crew Best In Talladega

Carl Edwards’ crew won the Tissot Pit Road Precision Award in Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Talladega Superspeedway.

It was the second Tissot win of the season for the No. 99 crew and the ninth win for a Roush Fenway Racing team.

Edwards’ Ford Fusion spent the least amount of time on pit road (191.014 seconds) during the AMP Energy 500 at the Alabama 2.66-mile oval.

"The No. 99 crew did a good job in the pits at Talladega,” said No. 99 pit crew coach Jesse Posey. “We had several green-flag pit stops throughout the race which can be difficult, but the guys did their jobs well and rose to the challenge. It is great that their efforts are recognized with this award.”

Edwards’ over-the-wall crew, which earned $5,000 for the Tissot win, consists of: Greg Donlin (front-tire changer), Jeremy Dyer (front-tire carrier), Brandon Hopkins (rear-tire changer), Jody Fortson (rear-tire carrier), Craig Pope (jackman), Joe Karasinski (gasman) and Norm Lowe (catch can). The team’s crew chief is Bob Osborne.

With three races remaining in the 2009 season, three teams are in contention to claim the Tissot Pit Road Precision Award season championship which carries a $100,000 bonus plus Tissot watches for the crew and driver.

Greg Biffle’s No. 16 crew leads the competition with six wins, followed by five wins for Jeff Gordon’s No. 24 crew and four wins for Jimmie Johnson’s No. 48 crew.

If there’s a tie in the Tissot competition after the final race at Homestead-Miami Speedway (Nov. 22), the team which finishes the highest in the Sprint Cup driver point standings will be awarded the Tissot season title.

Tissot has been the official watch and timekeeper of NASCAR since 2006. The company is also the official timekeeper for a number of other sports, including the MotoGP World Championship, the Ice Hockey World Championship and the Cycling World Championship.
