Carl Edwards & Joe Gibbs Racing: Deal Finally Official

Joe Gibbs Racing confirmed the worst-kept secret in NASCAR Tuesday morning when founder Joe Gibbs announced the signing of Carl Edwards.

The move is a major coup for JGR and a major blow to Roush Fenway Racing, where Edwards had raced for his entire NASCAR career.

Gibbs announced on YouTube that his group had signed Edwards and had inked a deal with telecommunications firm ARRIS Group to sponsor Edwards’ car.

WE’ve been trying to add a fourth car for a number of years but in order to do that you have to have a great sponsor, and we finally have that combination. Carl Edwards, we’re so excited about having him on board with Denny, Matt and Kyle.

Edwards, 35, will drive the No. 19 Toyota Camry, joining Denny Hamlin, Kyle Busch and Matt Kenseth.
