Seasoned by past runner-up finishes, Carl Edwards eyes first Sprint Cup crown

Twice before, Columbia native Carl Edwards has raced for a championship at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Twice before, he settled for a runner-up finish in the NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup. Edwards will give it another shot Sunday after qualifying for the Championship Four. He’ll battle six-time champion Jimmie Johnson, reigning champion Kyle Busch and last week’s race winner Joey Logano for the elusive crown (1:30 p.m., NBC).
