So far, 2011 is appearing to be a resurgence for the Ford camp as a whole. After a dismal 2010 that left Ford with only 4 wins in NASCAR's top division, the Blue Oval's have won two of the three races run this season and appear to be in contention for many more throughout the rest of the season.
Edwards is flexing his muscle early. Carl currently sits 3rd in the Sprint Cup Standings after a 2nd place finish in the Daytona 500 and his Las Vegas win. Had it not been for being caught up in a wreck at Phoenix, in a car that Edwards fully felt could've won the race, he would probably be leading the Sprint Cup Series standings.

So tell me what you think: Carl Edwards, Contender or Pretender?
