Carl Edwards shares thoughts on moonlighting as analyst for ESPN’s NASCAR Nationwide Series

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Carl Edwards visited the ESPN campus this week and appeared on several ESPN programs and platforms.

Edwards has been moonlighting as an analyst for ESPN since 2011, first on SportsCenter during the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup and then in the broadcast booth during select NASCAR Nationwide Series races. Edwards called two races last year and is doing three this season, the final one being this Saturday at Talladega Superspeedway (2:30 p.m. ET, ESPN).

Edwards will join ESPN NASCAR anchor Allen Bestwick and analyst Andy Petree in the booth at Talladega.

In this interview with Front Row, Edwards talks about his work as a TV analyst and how the role has been much more challenging than he expected.
