Top Ten Free Agency Deals Carl Edwards Turned Down

Hey, Carl, have I got a proposition for you…

*10.* *From Michael Waltrip Racing:* A NAPA KnowHow karaoke machine, free with a Michael Waltrip mixtape and brochure: How To Sell Your Sponsors And Annoy People 101.

*9.* *From Richard Petty Motorsports:* A check that doesn’t actually bounce… but we can’t guarantee that next month.

*8.* *From Earnhardt Ganassi Racing:* One free payback “incident” for any driver of choice, courtesy Juan Pablo Montoya’s front bumper.

*7.* *From Tommy Baldwin Racing:* Can be one of the Top 10 Kids who eat free at Golden Corral.

*6.* *From NEMCO Motorsports:* A chance to run 500 laps… for the WHOLE year! Bonus incentives for running five laps or less.

*4.* *From Penske Racing:* Kurt Busch’s entire pit crew… for some reason, they all immediately volunteered to leave when told they could work for anyone else.

*3.* *From Red Bull Racing:* Beautiful, empty 10,000 square-foot race shop in Mooresville, along with a fleet of race-ready Toyotas at bargain prices. Talks cut off when Edwards reminded RBR management they would actually have to pay _him…_ not the other way around.

*1.* *From Joey Logano:* A free ice cream and a “pretty, pretty, pretty please don’t ruin my career!” Oh wait… he took that one. Was wondering what made the difference with Roush Fenway…
