Despite making his second visit to a NASCAR Cup race in less than two months, Carl Edwards said he doesn‘t foresee a return to competition in the future.

“I‘m not planning on doing any (NASCAR) driving. This is the tip of the spear. These guys are so good that I would be terribly slow, and I would have to prep a lot. Seriously, that‘s the truth,” Edwards, now 43, said Sunday at Nashville (Tenn.) Superspeedway.

For me, racing is a risky sport. There‘s risk involved and if I‘m not committed 100 percent, I just don‘t feel it‘s the right thing for me to go do for fun. I‘ve been paying attention. The hits are hard. They still are. That‘s one of the reasons I‘m not racing is because I‘m aware of that.”

Still, though, Edwards offered a caveat that could one day reopen the door.

“But I tell you what, if (the desire) does creep in, that‘s it‘s something we want to go do, I promise you I‘ll give it 100 percent,” he said. “I‘ll do the best I can. But right now, I‘m not planning on anything.”
