In the debut of what will become a regular Driver2Driver feature on NASCAR America, Carl Edwards sits down with NASCAR America’s Jeff Burton to discuss growing up in a small town in Missouri, his father’s influence on his racing career, his relationship with Ken Schrader, his career-initiating opportunity and more.

Edwards even reveals that if he hadn’t gone into racing, he may very well have gone on to become a dentist.

With a gleaming white smile like his, does that surprise you?
