While champion Tony Stewart amounted five wins in the Chase, he also only came away with nine top-fives and 19 top-10s (just over half, for those of you non-math majors) in 36 races.
Edwards, meanwhile, amassed 19 top-fives (again, over half of the races) and 26 top-10s. Those numbers haven't been matched by anyone since Edwards went 19 and 27 in 2008. Care to guess where he finished that year?
He said on ESPN after the Homestead-Miami finale that he told his wife the night before if he didn't win, he'd try to be the best runner-up the sport has ever had. Ironically, that seems to be the direction Carl has headed with his career.
