Carl Edwards Reportedly Declines Offer To Be Aric Almirola’s Recplacement

Although nothing’s been done official, it’s reasonable to assume Aric Almirola’s back injury will force a motorist to skip some time. That would leave an open mark in Richard Petty Motorsports’ No. 43 car, a mark that could be filled by Carl Edwards.

But don’t get your hopes up.

The former Joe Gibbs Racing motorist did accept a call from RPM about replacing Almirola while he recovers, yet he declined, FOX Sports’ Alan Cavanna reported on “NASCAR Race Hub” on Monday. Cavanna also offering discernment into what Almirola, who fractured his T5 vertebrae in a fiery wreck during Kansas Speedway, will face during his recovery.

Personally, we’re not astounded Edwards declined this offer. The driver, who retired from NASCAR in January, has been a small bustling doing what many people do in retirement: Setting universe records in mutated Toyota SUVs.

Edwards, though, has left a doorway open for a lapse to a sport, nonetheless we already know he won’t be replacing a soon-to-be late Dale Earnhardt Jr.
